If we need to get a healthy food, we need to adapt healthy agricultural practices… & Self-Sustainable Farming is a timely solution. It is not a totally new invention but is an enhanced version of earlier practices, adopting methods suitable to present day conditions. It is an agriculture method that works in harmony with nature rather than against it. It depends on practices such as crop rotation, green manure, compost and Integrated Pest Management. This farming uses natural herbicides, insecticides and fungicides and it strictly excludes the use of synthetic petrochemical fertilizers, pesticides, plant growth regulators, genetically modified organisms & antibiotic use in livestock. It’s a farming practice that brings about sustainable farming solution, health, safety and good quality of life to everyone involved.
Villages are the back bone of our country and Farming had always been a way of life and not some kind of bread-winning business.
But unfortunately, major part of cultivable lands is lost in the name of expansion & to the greedy hands of multinational companies, supported by political bureaucracy.
Also, the prolonged usage of chemical fertilizers and insecticides by many in the name of Green Revolution resulted in the loss of soil nutrition & bio-diversity and we are in danger of losing our pollinators especially Honey Bees which is responsible for pollinating 70% of the crops we eat.
As the renowned scientist Albert Einstein once quoted, “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.”
Moreover, many farmers could not sustain owing to the nonexistence of direct connectivity to retail market. As a result, many farmers commit suicide and many more were forced to sell out their lands to the Real Estate developers & switch over to other works with heavy hearts.
It’s time to realize that exploitation of natural resources by men to satisfy their greedy materialistic needs is the base for most of the natural calamities and that saving the resources is everyone’s responsibility.
In fine, Self-sustainable Farming is a major contributor to bring about Food-independence & the beautiful chain of Bio-diversity. It is a wonderful way to reduce the usage of water resources in agriculture, to improve the soil nutrition, to create a sustainable livelihood for farmers, healthy nutritive food, reduced risk of chronic life-style prone diseases and creating real wealth to future generation.
