Organic Farming:

Due to decades of indiscriminate use of chemical fertilizers the organic matter content of soils has come down. The use of chemical fertilizers is cause for concern for the safety of food and sustainable production. It is believed that organic farming by reverting to the use of manures, green manures, urban waste, rural wastes, etc. can bring eco-friendliness and sustainability to agriculture. Organic farming is a production of crops that avoids or largely excludes the use of synthetically compound fertilizers, pesticides, growth regulators and livestock feed additives. To the maximum extent feasible, organic farming systems rely upon crop rotation, crop residues, animal manures, legumes, green manures, off-farm organic wastes, mechanical cultivation, mineral bearing rocks and aspects of biological pest control to maintain, soil productivity and to supply plant nutrients and to control insects, weeds and other pests.
