“PramparagatKrishiVikasYojana (PKVY)” a sub-component of Soil Health Management (SHM) scheme under National Mission of Sustainable Agriculture (NMSA) aims at development of sustainable models of organic farming through a mix of traditional wisdom and modern science to ensure long term soil fertility buildup, resource conservation and helps in climate change adaptation and mitigation..
Objectives of the Scheme :
-  To promote natural resource based integrated and climate resilient sustainable farming systems that ensure maintenance and increase of soil fertility, natural resource conservation, on-farm nutrient recycling and minimize dependence of farmers on external inputs.
-  To sustainably produce chemical free and nutritious food for human consumption.
-  To protect environment from hazardous inorganic chemicals by adoption of ecofriendly low cost traditional techniques and farmer friendly technologies.
-  To empower farmers through their own institutional development in the form of clusters and groups with capacity to manage production, processing, value addition and certification management.
