Soil Health Card Day observed on 19th February
Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Soil Health Card (SHC) Scheme on 19th February, 2015 at Suratgarh in Rajasthan. Fifth year of the launch of the scheme is being observed on the ‘Soil Health Card (SHC) Day’, this year.
The scheme aims at issuing soil health cards to all farmers every two years. The card would provide details about the nutritional deficiencies in soil, so that the farmers can supplement the soil with suitable fertilizers and increase the yields.
