Lucknow: To promote organic farming in Uttar Pradesh, industry body Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) has decided to adopt five districts in the State.
“The ASSOCHAM has decided to develop five districts in UP as organic districts and a delegation of the association will soon meet Chief Minister Mayawati in this regard,” association general secretary D. S. Rawat said.
He said under the plan, training will be imparted to farmers of these districts, besides promoting medium and small enterprises in the State by developing 25 clusters on public private partnership (PPP) basis.
