The Key Focus For Natural Farming

Natural farming techniques are mainly in line with the Food and Agriculture Organization's agro ecological principles. It provides feasible options for farmers to better their livelihoods while decreasing the negative environmental effects of chemical agriculture.

Natural farming is a method in which agricultural practices are guided by natural laws. This strategy works in tandem with the natural biodiversity of each farmed area, allowing the complexity of living species, both flora, and fauna, that create each ecosystem to thrive alongside food plants.

On several occasions, the Hon'ble Prime Minister has underlined the significance of natural farming. He most recently recommended that natural farming be developed into a broad movement during a national conclave on the subject on December 16, 2021.

The budget for 2022–23 also proposed the development of chemical-free natural farming across the country, beginning with fields along a 5-kilometer stretch of the Ganga.
