“Conventional Agricultural Development Scheme (PKVY)” is a sub-component of the Soil Health Management (SHM) scheme under the National Mission of Sustainable Agriculture (NMSA), the development of sustainable development of organic farming through a mixture of traditional knowledge and modern science. Is for. Helps in optimization and mitigation of long term soil fertility buildup, resource conservation and climate change. It primarily aims to increase soil fertility and thus helps in the production of healthy food through biological practices without the use of agro-chemicals. The purpose of PKVY is to empower farmers through groups through institutional development, which is not only engaged in value addition and direct marketing through agricultural practice management, input production, quality assurance but through innovative means. Under the PGSY-India program, the participative gurantee system will be the key approach to quality assurance under PKVY. Farmers will have the option to adopt any form of organic farming in accordance with PGS-India standards. While adopting a system, it should be ensured that the adopted system is favorable to the area and crop and provides assurance of optimum yield and provides adequate measures for the management of nutrients, insects and diseases. Workers will have the flexibility to use appropriate package of practice (best) to suit their conditions.
