Under Madhya Pradesh Pratikriti Krishi Vikas Yojana, a total of 5,200 villages and 26,000 farmers in 52 districts of the state will be covered. In this framework, 100 villages from each district and 5 farmers from each village will be awarded the title of master trainer by providing them with training in natural agriculture. After that, these master trainers will teach the ropes of natural farming to farmers raising cows in their respective regions.

Know how much you will earn with this program

Farmers who raise cows or are involved in animal husbandry and practice natural farming on at least 1 acre will receive a grant of Rs 900 through this scheme. In other words, a farmer raising even a single cow is entitled to Rs 10,800 per year.
