new Delhi. The Central Government has released the 'Wasteland Atlas - 2019' of 2019. According to this, barren land has decreased between 2015-16 as compared to 2008-09. During this time, 1.45 million hectares of barren land has been converted into Non-Wasteland category. Prime Minister Narendra Modi (Narendra Modi) has set a target of making 26 million hectares of wasteland usable by 2030. About 75 lakh people will get employment through this initiative.

 According to this atlas, 17.21 percent land was barren here in the year 2008-09, which has come down to 16.96 percent in 2015-16. This means that you cannot grow anything in it. Due to this, not only is there a negative impact on agriculture, but the chances of employment in this sector are also coming down. That is why the Modi government has set a target of making 26 million hectares of barren land fertile in the next 10 years. Due to this, about 75 lakh people have been claimed to get employment.

 Union Atlas of Rural Development and Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar released this atlas. This atlas has been created in collaboration with the Department of Land Resources and National Remote Sensing Center (NRSC). According to Atlas, India has 2.4 percent of the total area of ​​the world while 18 percent of the world's population lives here. The per capita agricultural land availability in India is 0.12 hectares, while the world average is 0.29 hectares.

 Scientists around the world did brainstorm in September

 Barren land is a crisis for farming all over the world. There was a global conference in Greater Noida in the first and second week of September. In this, there was a churn on making barren i.e. poor land fertile. Agricultural experts say that organic farming is a big option to deal with this crisis. If organic farming increases, the land will be saved from being barren.

 Why is land becoming barren?

 Agriculture expert and Vice Chancellor of Rajiv Gandhi Central University Arunachal, Prof. Saket Kushwaha says that such situations are arising due to indiscriminate use of chemical fertilizer and floods and lack of water. The steps the government is taking to end the barren land will yield very positive results in a few years. The use of urea to make the country self-sufficient in the agricultural sector started after the Green Revolution (1965–66). But agricultural sector experts say that the urea that we are using to increase production is gradually making our fields barren. To understand its danger, India established the Society for Conservation of Nature (SCN) in the year 2004 to assess nitrogen. In addition to this, about one hundred hundred scientists published a report called Indian Nitrogen Assessment. In which its side effects have been described.
