Organic farming expert Bhupathi Raju Rama Krishna Raju explains the impact of using Chemical fertilizers and Pesticides on our soil. He says Fertilisers are agriculture’s credit card. Natural farming, cattle based farming, organic farming call it by any name, fertiliser free farming is the fixed deposit.
Organic farming is an agricultural approach that promotes healthy food products harvested without the use of pesticides that harm humans and nature. Organic farming assures safe and healthy food besides making agriculture an eco-friendly activity. The practice of organic agriculture existed in India since ancient times. Unfortunately, these ancient organic farming methods were forgotten with the advent of fertilisers that help in easy and fast ways to maximise the yield the crop.
But the use of these toxic fertilisers poisons the land, water and eventually results in deadly diseases. There is a need to revive organic farming on a large scale to provide nature nourished, medicinally rich food free from harmful chemicals. Organic agriculture methods not only help in getting safe and healthy food but also prevent environmental damage caused due to chemicals leaking into the soil and water sources, thus reducing pollution as well.
