PM Modi launches Soil Health Card scheme targeting 14 crore farmers

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a Soil Health Card scheme, under which the Centre plans to target over 14 crore farmers in the next three years to check the excess use of fertilisers. The card, to be issued after testing soil, would help farmers save up to Rs 50,000 in 3 acres of land. Niti Aayog and the states have been asked to constitute high-powered expert committees on agriculture to boost farm growth.
