Is it possible to get a good yield without using chemical fertilizers? Will a shift to organic farming affect our food security? Can we manage insect pests without using chemical pesticides? Will organic cultivation still be profitable for farmers?
These are some of the burning questions I have been trying to answer for a few years now. I can answer some of these questions based on my own experience @GreenAcres but I am still trying to answer all of these questions with a working model. If anyone is interested they are more than welcome to come visit my farm and we can work together to find all the answers.
In the mean time, I have heard a lot about Enabavi and the Center for Sustainable Agriculture (CSA) and the good work they have been doing. Though I have not visited Enabavi personally, I met people who have visited the village. I will visit the village some time to learn from them. For now I am attaching an article published in the Hindu which talks about the same questions.
