Organic farmers adopt a comprehensive crop nutrient management approach, employing crop rotation that incorporates cover crops and the application of organic plant and animal matter, typically in the form of compost. Additionally, they implement suitable tillage and cultivation practices to enhance soil structure, increase organic matter content, and promote thriving soil microbial life.
Organic Agriculture is a production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems, and people. It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than the use of inputs with adverse effects
Fertilisers are additional substances supplied to the crops to increase their productivity. These are used by the farmers daily to increase the crop yield. These fertilisers contain essential nutrients required by the plants, including nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus.
Organic fertilizers are naturally available mineral sources that contain moderate amount of plant essential nutrients. They are capable of mitigating problems associated with synthetic fertilizers. They reduce the necessity of repeated application of synthetic fertilizers to maintain soil fertility.
