Bhopal: “We must protect our environment and ensure water and soil conservation otherwise our very existence will be in danger” said noted organic and vertical farming expert Patanjali Jha.
Jha, who is posted as Principal Director Income Tax (Investigation) at Bhopal, is a keen environment enthusiast. Giving a talk on “Environment Protection” to the NCC cadets at their ongoing Camp at RKDF University, Gandhi Nagar in the state capital, he highlighted the ill effects of pesticides and chemical fertilisers.
Jha said that if the dying rivers were not resuscitated and the eroding soil was not conserved very soon we shall be on the verge of extinction.
Suggesting counter measures to mitigate the crisis, Jha focused attention on the advantages of organic farming, vertical farming and various techniques for soil conservation.
