Environment

Attempts are underway to give a modern shape to agriculture. This moderninsation of agriculture lays emphasis on excessive use of chemical fertilisers, insecticides and pesticides. Over a period of time, these chemicals harm not only the valuable soil, but also cause irrepairable damage to environment.

To arrest this trend, MUS is creating awareness among the farmers about environment. It is motivating them to adopt low cost agriculture, that lays emphasis on organic farming using organic inputs. The results have been encouraging as nearly 250 people all over the area have evinced keen interest in such agriculture.

The organisaiton is creating awareness about plants like zatropha, teak, peppermint, sweet tulsi, mango, mahua, peepal, etc., and motivating the people to plant them so as to on one hand protect the environment and on the other hand improve their economic condition.
