National Online Workshop on Advanced Sustainable Agricultural Practices
Rather than traditional methods of agricultural practices which take produce without disturbing nature, we are producing bulk food through industrial agriculture—a system dominated by growing the same crops year after year, using enormous amounts of chemical pesticides and fertilizers that damage soils, water, air, and climate. This system is unsustainable practices of agriculture which need to be changed. Moving moving toward a farming system that is more sustainable—environmentally, economically, and socially. This system gives scope for all farmers, producing all types of food that maximize productivity and profit while minimizing environmental damage.
