Let s say three cheers to organic farmingThe old is not only gold, but one of great interest too. The grand revival of organic farming in many parts of the country and evidences of the soil being saved and people getting to eat better quality vegetables and fruits through best organic farming methods is sought to become the focus of not only debates but also almost a campaign against the use of nitrogenous fertilizers. In Tamil Nadu, the story is perhaps two decades old, piloted and made very famous through the untiring efforts of the late Mr. Namvazhwar, an enviroentalistalist with a clear goal in his life. The MNCs in the fertilizer business sought to demolish his claims. However,he got several teams of farmers to do what he thought was good for all.
It is in the fitness of things that we go back to the old method of organic farming rightaway and save agriculture as a profession.
