Visit to Japan
- Greetings from Varanashis.
I am happy to inform that I will be travelling to Canada to participate
at IFOAM 2002 - 14th Organic World Congress to be held at Victoria, Canada
from 21 to 25, Aug. 2002. My wife and colleague Mrs. Ashwini Krishna
Moorthy will accompany me. Our paper titled "Varanashi Farms towards
Organic and Sustainable Agriculture" has been accepted for
oral presentation in session "Organic Farming Around the World: Model
Farms". It is a great occasion for us to share our experience. We are
happy that our efforts have received recognition. Immediately after the
Congress, we plan to make a tour of Canada and USA followed by
Japan,Singapore,Malaysia and Indonesia. Meeting Scientists, farmers and Food
marketers is main purpose of the tour. We want to interact with as many
people as possible. If possible, we like sharing our experience with group
of interested people.
We have experience in following fields:
1. Organic farming.
2. Compost production (A new method known as VRF Method is developed by us).
3. Water harvesting techniques.
4. Bio fertilizers & Bio pesticides (Trichoderma).
5. Cultivation and processing of Vanilla and Cocoa,
We are sure people will be interested to hear us in one or more of above
subjects. The lecture/workshop could be given with slide/multi media
I request the interested people in Japan and other countries of our visit
to contact us. mail their e-mail addresses to me. We are also looking for
interaction and information exchange in our field of work.
