Speaking on the occasion, Governor Lt Gen Gurmeet Singh (Seni) said that there is a solution to many problems in natural farming system. Acharya Devvrat has given a new dimension to an ancient agricultural system of India. I congratulate him for showing us all a way to return to nature.

The Governor said that natural farming is not a new form but a new identity according to the age of our ancient Vedic thought. This is the need of the hour and we have to return to natural farming. To make natural agriculture a brand in Uttarakhand, we have to implement this vision on the ground. He said that we have to pursue natural agriculture and cow service together. Cow dung and cow urine are very beneficial in making manure for natural farming. He said that we have to move forward by connecting our civilization, culture with the oldest history with modern technologies. The ancient method has to be combined with the modern technology. Artificial intelligence, drone technology, ropeway, this is the future of India, some goals have to be set in this direction.

Governor said that we have to make agriculture our culture by adopting agriculture and take cooperative to corporate. He said that this is the Amrit Kaal of India, which is the decade of Uttarakhand. New records for the development of Himalayas and Devbhoomi will have to be set in this decade. He said that goals have to be set for the coming time. Starting with agriculture, we have to write a new script for a developed Uttarakhand.
Gujarat Governor Acharya Devvrat, present in the workshop, said in his address that the land of Uttarakhand is rich in natural beauty and wealth, which can prove to be a boon for natural farming. He said that natural farming can prove to be a game changer for the economy of Uttarakhand. For this, farmers will have to give up chemical farming and organic farming. He said that at present our farmers are using chemicals and fertilizers excessively in their fields, due to which the fertile potential of the land is getting exhausted. The harmful effects of chemical fertilizers are coming due to which many diseases are also happening. Carbon and micronutrients are depleting in the fields.

He said that to solve all these problems, we have to return to natural farming. He said that natural farming is being done by me in 200 acres in which chemical fertilizers are not used at all. He informed that natural farming is being done by 2 lakh farmers in Himachal Pradesh and about 3 lakh farmers in Gujarat. The Governor asked the agricultural scientists to do more and more research on natural farming and encourage more farmers to do so. While natural farming will save the environment, the income of the farmers will be doubled and they will become strong and happy. On the basis of his experiences, Governor Devvrat enumerated the importance of natural farming and its benefits to the farmers present.
