Haritha Haram

  • Telangana Ku Haritha Haram, better known as Haritha Haram is a noble initiative of the Telangana Government to introduce large scale reformation in the field of agriculture and forestry to improve the green cover which has a tremendously positive impact on the ecological balance.

  • Telangana presently has a forest cover of 24% and through this programme the Government aims at increasing this figure to 33%. It was launched with the efforts of the erstwhile Telangana Chief Minister Shri Kalvakuntla Chandrasekhar Rao on the 3rd of July, 2015. The principal target of the Haritha Haram is to plant 230 crores of plants in Telangana.

Aims and objectives of the Haritha Haram from our contribution:

  • To plant at least 230 trees per village.

  • To plant 400 seedlings in each village and 1 lakh seedlings in each assembly constituency.

  • For the efficacious fulfillment of these astronomical goals, various modern agricultural techniques have been adopted and required advanced machinery has also been sanctioned.

  • The Government wants to leave no stone unturned to realize the green goal and therefore, special committees have been created at each start of the administrative hierarchy, from Gram Panchayats who will oversee the work done and will make sure that the proposed goals are achieved effectively.

  • The Forest Department and the Department of Agriculture has been actively involved for effective assessment of the survival rates of the planted seedlings.

The various planting models that have been adopted for Haritha Haram include:

  • Institutional Plantation

  • Agro Forestry Plantation

The organization has organized the “Awareness Camp on Climate Change” in the villages of Huzurabad Mandal in Karimnagar District, under the National Environment Awareness Campaign. The problems of climate change is due to the practice of modern agricultural methods and extensive usage of chemical fertilisers. Organic farming management relies on developing biological diversity in the field to destroy pests and the purposeful maintenance and replenishment of soil fertility. Organic farmers are not allowed to use synthetic pesticides or fertilizers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Organically produced food is more nutritious than present inorganically produced food and is safe to consume. Also, organic farming does not totally exclude the elements of modern agriculture. Varying agro climatic conditions are to need inputs from the current technological advances. The foundation has also set up demonstration of medicinal tree plantation in the premises of Elementary School of Huzurabad. It also encouraged people to participate in planting the samples in the school premises. The villagers were involved in the concept of control of climate change through plantation and conservation of water along with the adoption of organic farming.
