Organic farming: Nature's True Friend Farming is of crucial importance and bears a great responsibility for environmental protection. But the current scenario of farming has totally evolved and is becoming a threat to environmental. Mechanized tilling and harvesting, as well as fertilizers and pesticides, have an impact on soil, water, air and on the plants and animals that inhabit farm areas (general biodiversity). Intensive farming aimed at increased yields leave behind monotonously denuded farmland, while the use of heavy machinery and intensive tilling can compact the soil, and increases the likelihood of soil fertility loss and water and wind erosion. Groundwater contamination by nitrates and the eutrophication of rivers, lakes and oceans is mainly attributable to extensive use of nitrogen-rich fertilizers. Pesticides and fertilizers containing heavy metals, as well as pharmaceutical contaminants and residues from animal breeding, pose an additional threat to terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. In 2016 our farm sector accounted for 7.3 per cent of our greenhouse gas emissions.

The solution to all these problems is organic farming. Providing organic nutrition for vegetative and flower production can change the whole


scenario as Organic farming is a system which avoids or largely excludes the use of synthetic inputs (such as fertilizers, pesticides, hormones, feed additives etc) and to the maximum extent feasible rely upon crop rotations, crop residues, animal manures, off-farm organic waste, mineral grade rock additives and biological system of nutrient mobilization and plant protection. Its Key Features are: •

Natural Livestock and Poultry Production

Natural Crop Production

Buffer Zones and Record Keeping

Soil Management

Organic farming is an agricultural production systems reliant on green manure, compost, biological pest control i.e. use of Vegetable Grade powdery mildew Fungicide, and crop rotation to produce crops, livestock, and poultry. Organic farming is dependent on developing ecological biodiversity in the plantation farm to interrupt the habitation of pests and diseases, and ensuring meaningful maintenance and improvement of soil fertility. Attaining a friendly and green environment has always been a great concern worldwide and research discloses that organic farming can partly offer a solution. Long term studies about organic agricultural practice reveal it can provide an impressive mechanism for promoting ecological harmony, biodiversity, and biological cycles which are vital for environmental sustainability. So, as the title suggests give the promise of organic farming to the nature and maintain the friendship of healthy ecology.
