21. Soil Health Card Scheme
Launched on February 19, 2015, this Modi scheme issues farmers soil cards. It aims to help farmers to produce higher yields at minimal cost. It plans to implement that through balanced use of fertilizers. This scheme also spreads awareness among farmers about the right amount of nutrients for different types of crops. The soil’s micro-nutrients deficiency and strengths will be measured in the lab. The results and the related suggestions will be printed on the cards and given to the farmers. The government is targeting 14 crore farmers with this scheme.
