Water is an essential element for agriculture. As water scarcity is increasing horribly, can we imagine agriculture without water? But, if we grow five crops together on the same land, then the total input of fertilizers, pesticides, growth promoters of five crops is less than the input of one crop. It takes less than 30% of the water.” These things were said by Akash Chaurasia, an organic agricultural scientist, Sagar, Madhya Pradesh, on the fifth day of the training program for multi-layer farming.

Rashmi Singh, IAS, Special Secretary and Director, Ministry of Women and Child Development said that “Agriculture is the main means of livelihood of women in the country.
