  5. This initiative is good ,i am working as Consultant to Prathibha Syntex,which is promoting 40 -50 thousand farmers who are growing organic cotton in MP
    We have developed very good quality G arboreum lines and distributing to farmers ,Intra hirsutum hybrids are also .there.
    With WWF India when I worked in Chindawada MP 6000 farmers cultivated oraganic cotton .
    I appreciate the work of Gujarat Govt .
    Nonbt cultivation should be promoted in this project .

  6. This is an excellent initiation towords ecological rejuvenation. Todays need for carbon sequestration /Global warming mitigation programs can be achieved through such initiatives. Avoiding excess usage of irrigation water and other modern agricultural practices – can be achieved by uplifting the farmers from forest areas.
    I am motivating farmers in south india for cultivation of Tree crops like mahagony, cashew sandle and etc.
    Thanks for Gujarath Forest Dept and specially to Dr. Ravindranatha Sugur ji.
