Cooperative giant IFFCO has initiated a soil health card scheme while celebrating the “soil health fortnight” in the Abohar area.

A mobile van has been provided by Chandigarh-based zone office to facilitate on-the-spot soil testing. At a gathering in Waryamkhera village near here, 50 cards were issued. Experts exhorted farmers to shun excess use of chemical fertilisers and to get soil tested.
