Sustainable Development and Organic Farming
Today the awareness about the harmful effects of the pesticides is quite high. Conventional agriculture is heavily dependent on chemical fertilizers and pesticides which are toxic in nature. These enter the food supply, penetrate the water resources, cause harm to the livestock, deplete the soil and destroy the eco systems. Evolving eco friendly technologies are important in order to achieve sustainable development. One such technology is organic farming. Organic agriculture is a whole system of farming which restores, maintains and enhances the balance of the eco systems. The demand for organically grown food in order to enhance food safety is growing rapidly.
