The Participatory Guarantee System under the umbrella of the PGS-India Program will be the principal approach for ensuring the quality of soil under the roof of Paramparagat Krishi Vikas Yojana.
Organic farming works on the principle of sustainable agriculture. It aids to develop and sustain the natural landscape and Agro-System. By circumventing the overexploitation of natural resources, organic farming conserves as well as upgrades soil vitality, leading to maximum economic returns, with a reliable, guarded, and healthful functioning environment.

The overreaching conception behind bringing Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana (PMKSY) is to assure access to a few of the significant means of shielding irrigation to most of the agricultural farms situated within the boundaries of the country, to present ‘per drop more crop,’ consequently bringing much yearned rural accomplishment.
National Mission for Sustainable Agriculture has been formed for intensifying and upgrading agricultural productivity, especially in rain fed regions of India, directing integrated farming, soil health and quality management, water use competence, and synergizing resource preservation.
