FARMERS and agencies in many parts of the country are experimenting with organic farming-using natural products such as manure - because it is ecofriendly and because such farm products are gaining in popularity. But there is a dearth of literature on organic farming.
The Centre for Science and Environment, involved in creating awareness on environmental issues, has brought out Green Fanning, a directory of individuals and organisations involved in organic farming in India.
The information has been provided in a statewise manner with brief accounts of techniques and material used in organic farming. These include preparation of compost, plant repellents and cattle urine.
The booklet will be a base for researchers studying sustainable farming.
