Natural Farming

Natural farming, also known as organic farming, is a sustainable way of raising crops and MAPs without damaging the ecology. It helps exploit every element available in the cropping area or the farmland. It excludes inputs like fertilizers, pesticides, insecticides and chemicals and includes natural elements present in the locality. The major principles of natural farming are avoidance of Fertilisers, Pesticides and herbicides, Tillage, Weeding and Pruning.

Natural farming eliminates need for external chemical additives to the soil, incorporates minimum water usage, accommodates weeds in symbiosis to the crops and reduces labour and efforts in raising the crop by allowing the plants to grow in their natural way.

Importance of Multi-Cropping

Multi cropping is a form of Polyculture cultivating different varieties of plants on the same space at the same time in a way that they do not mutually race for the same set of natural resources. Multi-cropping is highly beneficial for soil, farm ecosystem and farmers. This sustainable method of farming mitigates risks arising from cultivation of single crops owing to micro-nutrient depletion, seasonal changes, risks from diseases and pests, fluctuating water supply as well as changes in market demands. If one crop fails due to any reason, farmers can rely on the other crops to make financial gains.

Benefits in MAPs Farming

Cultivation of exotic medicinal plants and aromatic plants is known as MAP’s farming. MAPs are used to create essential oils, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, nutraceutical products, natural dyes and colorants. Most of these exotic plants are collected in the wild while some are now cultivated in controlled conditions for commercial uses like extracting chemicals instead of ornamental use or consumption. Natural Farming or Agro-forestery techniques are the most essential practice in MAP’s farming to ensure chemical contamination free yields, healthy growth and deriving intensive yields without impacting the environment.
