Principles of Organic Agriculture

 Organic farming is the method of crop and livestock production that involves much more than choosing not to use pesticides, fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, antibiotics and growth hormones. In other words, it is referred to as, low input farming and uses natural sources of nutrients such as compost, crop residues and manure, and natural methods of crop and weed control, instead of using synthetic or inorganic agrochemicals.

OBJECTIVES OF ADOPTING ORGANIC FARMING

Organic farming may be adopted to achieve the following benefit

  1. To increase genetic diversity
  2. To promote more usage of natural pesticides
  3. Ensure the right soil cultivation at the right time
  4. Keep and build good soil structure and fertility
  5. Control pests, diseases and weeds

METHODS OF ORGANIC FARMING

1. Soil management

2. Weed management

3. Mulching

4. Mowing or Cutting

5. Crop diversity

6. Monoculture

7. Controlling other organisms

8. Raising Livestock Farming

9. Genetic modification

We should practice organic agriculture in a careful and responsible manner to benefit the present and future generations and the environment with food supply.
