Conventional farming and it's impact
India is one of the largest consumers of chemical fertilizers globally. In the fiscal year 2020-2021, the total consumption of fertilizers in India reached approximately 61 million tonnes and 63.94 million tonnes for 2021-2022 periods, with urea being the most widely used fertilizer. For pest control and 58,720 tons of pesticides was used in 2020-2021 period. Consumption of these chemicals is constantly increasing to get bigger yields, better shape and colors. It is estimated that 15% of global carbon emissions are occurred with industries related to agriculture.
Organic and natural farming practices prioritize the use of natural inputs and techniques, aiming to minimize harm to the environment while promoting soil health, biodiversity, and long-term agricultural productivity. This approach eliminates the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, improved crop varieties and hybrids, reducing chemical pollution and minimizing the risk of ecological imbalances. Instead, it emphasizes on seasonal cropping, use of organic manures and compost, crop rotation and natural pest control methods, which help maintain soil fertility, conserve water and protect wildlife habitats.
While countries like Japan, South Korea have already started seeing positive results with Natural farming techniques, India is witnessing its emergence. Wide awareness on importance of natural farming is leading to ‘back to roots’ farming.
