Organic farming is a technique, which involves cultivation of plants and rearing of animals in natural ways. This process involves the use of biological materials, avoiding synthetic substances to maintain soil fertility and ecological balance thereby minimizing pollution and wastage. In other words, organic farming is a farming method that involves growing and nurturing crops without the use of synthetic based fertilizers and pesticides. Also, no genetically modified organisms are permitted.
It relies on ecologically balanced agricultural principles like crop rotation, green manure, organic waste, biological pest control, mineral and rock additives. Organic farming make use of pesticides and fertilizers if they are considered natural and avoids the use of various petrochemical fertilizers and pesticides.
Development of Science, Technology and Industry has put us in a polluted mess. We breathe polluted air, drink polluted water, grow in polluted soil and eat. It is doubtful about long-term existence of living beings / things on earth due to discharge of unlimited toxin into air and earth.
Entire modern agricultural system has become slaves of harmful chemicals fertilizer, pesticide, fungicide, weedicide etc. Soil and water has been polluted and all micro organisms are dying due to ignorant and excessive discharge of unauthorized chemicals.
When we eat food grown in this environment and drink water from this environment it is not possible to avoid ingesting these harmful chemicals into our bodies.
Recent experiencing of acid rain which spoils the top surface of the soil is an alarming signal for us to have anything grown in earth. Then how do we expect any living being to exist on earth one day after many years.
We, at our farms do not limit just farming without harmful chemical but go beyond into protecting environment, agricultural traditions, traditional seeds, welfare of all other living by creating forest edges and further we use sensible energy derived from HOMA Farming and Ancient Vedic Science in cleaning the atmosphere.
