How we produce and consume food is no more an innocent activity
It never was.
The contribution of large scale industrialized agriculture in global
warming is not too insignificant. It is pointed out that industrialized
Animal Husbandry in Europe and North America and most of the
contemporary agriculture practices need to be re-organized for a cooler
planet. The wasteful expenditure of water and energy in contemporary
agriculture is scandalous.
In contrast to all that is ugly, polluting and wasteful of modern
agriculture, Fukuokas Natural Farming shows what can be achieved to meet
our saner needs with least minimum disturbances to our environment
Raju Titus is one of our pioneering Natural farmers from Hoshangabad -
Madhya Pradesh. Titus has been farming naturally for the past twenty
five years and is eminently successfully in evolving the farming systems
which is net conserver of water and energy. He has been successfully
growing wheat, pulses, oil seeds, fruits and vegetables and had left
large tracks of lands for forest farming.
Titus believes that Fukuokas Natural Farming approach to agriculture can
contribute enormously in rescuing our sick planet. Here is some one who
has done his mite in healing the earth.
Obviously words borne out of lived experience and conviction is becoming
rarer and rarer-------------.
All Are Welcome.........
