Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Monday has said that protecting the health of the earth is our highest duty.

“The reckless use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides to increase production has badly affected the health of the Earth and the quality of the soil. This has also had a bad effect on human health,” said Chouhan, in his inaugural address to the G-20 1st Agriculture Deputies Meeting (ADM) of Agriculture Working Group (AWG) at Indore.

Chouhan said, due to the ever increasing population, food security is an important issue facing the world today.

“Only 12 per cent of the world's land is suitable for agriculture. By the year 2030, the demand for food grains will be 345 million tonnes, while in the year 2000 this demand was 192 million tonnes. It is evident that neither the agricultural land is going to increase nor our natural resources are going to increase,” he said.

The CM said that under the leadership of PM Modi, there has been continuous improvement in agriculture growth rate in Madhya Pradesh for a decade.

He also said that PM Modi has taken up the task of promoting traditional millets in the form of a campaign. "Millets have been named as 'Shri Anna' by PM Modi. The United Nations has also declared this year as International Year of Millets. Let us make every possible effort that these nutritious grains do not disappear from the earth."
