by aditya abhishek


Organic farming is a method of agriculture that relies on natural processes and avoids the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and genetically modified organisms.


It enhances biodiversity. Biodiversity is essential for maintaining the balance of ecosystems and for the survival of all species, including humans.

Soil Health

Through the use of natural fertilizers, crop rotation, and the incorporation of cover crops, soil health improves. Use of bio-fertilizers also help in increasin microbial activities. 


It provide habitats for a diverse range of wildlife, including insects, birds, and microorganisms. It eliminates use of pesticides, which can harm beneficial organisms. 

Crop Diversity

Encourages crop diversity by using crop rotation & intercropping. Crop rotation involves alternating the types of crops grown in a particular field each season.

Genetic Diversity

Organic farms rely on natural processes to create diversity in crops, which helps to maintain the health of ecosystems & the resilience of crops to environmental stresses.

Water Conservation

Promote water conservation by reducing the use of irrigation and by improving the water-holding capacity of soils.

Organic farming is helpful, but, increasing population posses a direct threat to food security. It will be strange whether organic farming can solve the problem of food security or not.
