Think green for a better future

Agriculture being the primary occupation of most of the population in India has rightly been termed as the back bone of Indian economy.

About 75% of the India’s rural population are still dependent on agriculture for sustaining their livelihoods.

In today’s context where everything has changed, and the society has adapted to the fast pace of life, the urge to maintain a healthy diet is also at the core front.

As a result, it is essential to practice the methods of organic farming as it is a process that uses biological fertilizers and pest control acquired from animal or plant waste. Hence it is chemical free and natural fodder used to grow crops.

By implementing methods of organic farming in agriculture, one can reap benefits such as.

No expensive fertilisers, pesticides, or HYV seeds required for plantation of crops.  Hence reducing extra expense.

Good return on Investment, with the usage of cheaper and local inputs, a farmer can make a good return on investment.
