All the posts in the featured series talk particularly about Indian Agriculture Scenario.
We all dream about an ideal farm.. Ideal way of doing agriculture.. and then we just shun the thought thinking its just a dream.. Well.. I just decided to give it more thought and pursue it through..
An ideal farm is a farm that at first addresses all the drawbacks/concerns of current farms/system and secondly, adds value to the whole system, thereby making it an all together new system.
So when I wanted to conceptualize my new farm there were four major concerns that I wanted to address. The Photos to your left talk about the concerns and the photos to the right talk about the solutions. Click on the images for description:
- Fragmented Land Holdings
2. Labor oriented
3. Infertile soil due to Excessive/prolonged use of chemical Fertilizers.
4. Inadequate/Poor marketing of the produce.
Yes, you got it right. So we are talking about a fully mechanized farm which is huge in size (runs right till the horizon.. or at least I imagine it that way) carrying on organic/natural farming and supplying organic produce directly to consumers!
More about it in next post!
Happy Gardening! Happy Farming!
