Till now, it was about increasing the productivity and efficiency. But the main question was – how do i make it sustainable?
Sustainable – ecologically
Sustainable – financially
So let us discuss ecological sustainability in this post. The first one begins with soil. In order to farming being sustainable we need to opt for organic farming.
However buying organic compost/manure, preparing vermi-compost, was not a very viable option for the kind of scale we were planning. So how do we do it?
There was only one answer – Cows. A single cow on an average gives 10kg of dung everyday. That is 300-350 kg per month.
Cow-dung is an excellent manure and cow-urine an very potent insecticide. All in all we decided that we will have cows at the farm.
