Basic Steps of Organic Farming

By: Vaishnavi Barthwal

Crop Rotation

It is a useful tool in preventing soil diseases, insect pests, weed problems, and for building healthy soils


Living bacteria called "biofertilizers" improve soil nutrient availability or mobilise nutrients for plants


The decomposing form of dead plants and animals, known as manure, is spread on the soil to boost yields


vermicompost is a substitute for synthetic fertilizer to provide essential nutrients to the soil 

Animal Husbandry 

Integrated crop-livestock systems are seen as being particularly promising for increasing food production and soil fertility

Biological Management 

The dependency on harmful pesticides is drastically reduced by using various species that rely on natural ways to control insect pests

Green Leaf Manure 

It involves the application of green leaves to improve the organic content and fertility of the soil
