Why Organic / Ecological and Sustained Farming?
Sanskriti University’s Ecological Farming initiative is a move aimed at helping farmers produce quality crops and food grains that are rich in nutritional value. Under the current or the modern day agrarian practices, the soil is losing its nutritional value. The Ecological Farming processes will reinstate the nutritional cycle, where by farmers will use organic compost like dung and other natural products to add nutritional value and improve the fertility of the soil. Ecological farming will prove to be milestone in this direction. This effort will also improve the direction of deteriorating health of people andthe Earth.
