Practical organic farming

2 Mins read

When there were no chemical pesticides or fertilizers, all farmers practiced organic farming. Farmers used what was freely available around them; they did not particularly need money. Everything around them – in nature,
byproducts of farming, any organic matter, etc. – was highly valued and treated with respect. Organic farming is not new to us. For thousands of years, farming belonged to the farmers. Historically there were almost no instances when a farmer could not farm because he had no money. A man with no means of living should at least be able to live off the land. One should be able to resort to farming when one has no money. But nowadays, one should already have money in order to do farming. There are so many things to buy, invest and equip. Organic farming today has evolved into a strange system where you have to “buy expensive things from afar instead of valuing what is near and cheap.” Why? Because manufacturers, distributors and retailers of farm inputs were behind the development of organic farming to shape it into its current form. their profit-seeking attitude motivated the development of agricultural technologies to that effect. Organic farming is not something new. It is still vivid in our memories. method practiced by our ancestors holds the key to solving the problem of high-cost modern organic farming. It contains an entire system of utilizing microorganisms, liquid fertilizers and doing pest control. We are open to new methods developed by members. New methods and techniques are being continuously incorporated into the AgroLife system to shape an organic farming that is much lower-cost, easier and simpler than conventional farming. Africans should be proud as the founders of organic farming. Stop looking for answers in “modern Western” agriculture and neglect the thousands of years of our organic
farming history. AgroLife Organic Farming Let us bring farming back to the farmers. Nobody else but “I” should be the farming expert. Only then will you recover the viability of your farming. Let us stop increasing cost with the dream of selling at high prices and making big money. Viability means that you should still be able to make ends meet after selling at market price because you have succeeded in reducing the cost to an ultra-low level. I immensely believe that AgroLife will provide hope for farmers of all countries in this age where trade of agricultural products are becoming more and more free, price competition is becoming more intense.
