Along with the plantation, state government is going to use the technique of seed ball bombing. For this seed ball bombing, 60-70L of seed balls is already prepared. Haritha Haram began way back in 2015 from Ranga Reddy district Moinabad mandal’s Chilkur by CM K.Chandra Shekar Rao.

This time in the third phase they have set a target of planting 40cr of plants in which there will be 20 percent of fruit plants.
