4 August 2022
Dantiwada Agricultural University – Sardarkrishnanagar Dantiwada Agricultural University has undertaken research, education and extension work on various aspects of organic farming. For organic farming, the university has started organic farming in 90 acres of land. The result of which will be declared soon. Since 10 thousand farmers have started organic farming, now the Agricultural University will have to join it. Which will now be used. However, Gujarat Organic University could not excel in this field.
The cultivation of Subhash Palekar in Gujarat was started from 2016. 10 thousand plots belong to farmers. It’s time to sow. There are maximum 3500 farmers in Bhavnagar. Narsang is Mori’s farm. Do not scold, give water for 10 months. Kanubhai Bhatt Talja has one such form. 1 lakh mangoes were ripening, now 5-6 lakhs have been earned.
The Governor of Gujarat has connected two lakh farmers in Gujarat with Prakriti Krishi Jan Abhiyan.
In the Prakritik Krishi Mahila Sammelan organized by Subhash Palekar Prakriti Khati Jan Andolan Samiti and District Administration at Sardar Krishinagar Dantiwada Agricultural University, 5 lakh farmers across the state were interacted with through live telecast of Baiseg on August 4, 2022.
Gujarat Governor Acharya Devvrat said that it is necessary to adopt natural farming for the prosperity of agriculture and farmers. Green revolution was the need of the hour. The land is becoming barren due to indiscriminate use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
Experts believe that chemical agriculture and organic agriculture contribute 24 percent to the problem of global warming. Water, land and environment are getting polluted due to chemical agriculture. The fertility of the soil is decreasing day by day. Due to which agricultural production is also decreasing continuously.
Pesticides cause cancer
People are suffering from incurable diseases like cancer, diabetes due to consumption of contaminated grains. Costs in chemical agriculture continue to rise. The economic condition of the farmers has deteriorated due to low production. One option is organic farming. A pledge was taken to adopt organic farming by abandoning chemical fertilizers and toxic pesticides.
low cost of organic farming
Natural agriculture provides substantial production at low cost. So that farmers get economic benefits. The method of organic farming is simple.
The basic principles of organic agriculture are Beejamrut, Jeevamrut-Dhan Jeevamrut, Vasar, Achhadan and Mishrapak.
In which Jeevamrut is prepared by mixing dung-cow urine-gram flour-jaggery and soil in water. The solid organic matter is prepared in the same way, which acts as a natural fertilizer for agriculture. Due to this, helpful microorganisms and friendly organisms like earthworms grow in the soil and the soil becomes fertile.
300 crore microorganisms in 1 gram of cow dung
There are 300 crore germs in one gram of cow dung of Indian breed. Cow urine of indigenous cow is a storehouse of minerals. The biodegradation and solid biodegradation produced with its help nourish the soil as a natural fertilizer. Forest trees and vegetation grow naturally without any fertilizers or pesticides, just like organic farming does in the field.
Natural farming and organic farming are quite different.
Earthworms are used in organic agriculture. Exotic earthworms cannot function to their full potential in the Indian environment. There is no reduction in agricultural expenditure in the initial years in organic farming. The production gets reduced due to which organic farming is not as beneficial for the farmers as it should be.
The production in organic agriculture does not decrease in comparison to negligible agricultural inputs. Not only this, farmers also benefit from getting relatively higher prices for healthy grains.
Friendly creatures like earthworm are a boon to the farmers. Organic farming promotes the growth of organisms in the soil.
cover the ground with rubbish
The crops benefit by covering the soil instead of burning such residues. The cover protects the soil from high temperatures. The moisture level in the soil is maintained. 550 percent water is saved. Friends like earthworms also get a working environment.
Women farmers were urged to take care of indigenous cows and adopt organic farming. Women farmers who built a five-tier model farm inspired by Subhash Palekar were felicitated. The success story book of natural farmers of Banaskantha district was released.
Prafulbhai Sejliya is the state coordinator of Subhash Palekar Khati Jan Andolan Samiti. They say, there were 30 farmers in the Sangh. Prices are not available. 2016 Subhash Palekar class was done by me. Farmers’ income depends on fertilizers, seeds, pesticides, water, labour. Organic farming does not require medicines or fertilizers. 1 cow can cultivate 30 acres.
Went to see agriculture in Maharashtra. There it was not necessary to cultivate sugarcane for 100 years or to cultivate sugarcane for 50 years. He took classes. 6th class in Gujarat. The Governor of Himachal had come to Gujarat while doing a class at Dastan Farms in Ahmedabad. Then he came as the Governor of Gujarat.
Subhash Palekar started farming in Gujarat from 2016. 10 thousand plots belong to farmers. It’s time to sow. Bhavnagar has maximum 3500 farmers. Kanubhai Bhatt Talja has one such form.
There used to be 1 lakh mangoes, now it can grow 5-6 lakhs.
100 plots of farmers of Gujarat have become master plots. Not one crop but 10 to 15 crops can be sown. Vegetables, horticulture, light dependent orchards should be planted along with crops like pulses. The income can be doubled by planting haldi in the mango orchard.
Many farmers of Gujarat harvest food grains, vegetables, fruits daily at no cost by adopting the jungle model. In Gujarat 1.50 lakh to 2 lakh farmers are involved in organic farming.
