The Assam government has taken several initiatives for the welfare of those engaged in agriculture. 

As a part of it, Soil Health Cards are being distributed to farmers in the state providing information about nutrients status of the soils along with the recommendation on appropriate dosage of nutrients and fertilizers to improve soil health and fertility. 

Here is a ground report from AIR Guwahati Correspondent.

"Over 13 lakh Soil Health Cards have been distributed among farmers in the state so far while nearly 3 lakh soil samples have been tested. 

Lalit Chandra Das, a farmer from Kamrup district said, the soil health card has helped him in improving crop production of his fields.

Another farmer, Jintu Gayan from Barpeta district said, the soil health card provided him information about appropriate amount of nutrients and fertilizers required on his farm land, leading to higher yields.

The Assam government has set up around 26 soil testing centres in the state for the benefit of farmers.
