Organic Growth promoters and Pesticides

Cows are an integral part of organic farming. Cow dung and urine are fundamental ingredients.
Farm also manufactures and use organic growth promoters and pesticides. We are cultivating various vegetables organically and also experimenting different farming techniques. The farm has cows and goats which are primary source of input to make natural fertilizer and pesticides.

We are producing vermicompost in larger scale and marketing through local shops. This is to promote organic growth promoter usage and to avoid using chemical fertilisers.

JUST GIVING FREE MONEY OR LOAN WILL NOT WORK ALONE

Sustainable Solutions are the way to go..

Model Farm has reached a stage where we can start transferring our knowledge and experience to other farmers and  new farms. We can also lobby policy makers for definitive and meaningful steps for change and launch a strong grass root level education campaign for better practices to save our land and people.

 

Important stakeholders have started approaching us for different purposes. This includes administrators, agriculture specialists, farmers, major supermarkets, social workers and the media. This interest is a clear recognition of the uniqueness of this Model Farm, its purpose, progress and the confidence people have on it.
