Of late, concerns like climate change, environmental degradation, lifestyle-related ailments, etc., have made the words organic food, natural farming, integrated farming, zero-budget farming, etc., quite fashionable. Many people who weren’t associated with agriculture or farming earlier are interested in getting into natural farming and are keen to acquaint themselves with the basic principles of organic agriculture before they wade into farming as either a secondary occupation or for recreation purposes.
An Integrated farm is where different components of natural food production are available right on the farm itself. Agriculture, horticulture, livestock, poultry, fisheries, bees, etc. will coexist, supplement and complement one another with an inevitable interdependence to survive, grow and flourish. The design of an integrated farm should be such that the waste generated by one component of a farm will become the input for another component on the same farm. This considerably brings down the input costs of farming.
Be patient: You may be in a hurry, but nature never is. A traditional variety paddy crop may need 180 days to reach the harvesting stage from the time it was sown. To try and reduce the duration of the crop lifecycle from 180 to 120 days will involve intensive cultivation methods, which go against natural processes. Similarly, from the time it is hatched, a chick will take about 8 months to reach a weight of 1 Kg through free grazing. Intensive chemical-based processed feed is needed to make a chick attain a weight of 1 Kg in 45 days which is what most broiler chicken farmers do. If you want to succeed in organic farming, learn to be patient by taking comfort from the adage, ‘All good things come to those who wait.’
Have reasonable expectations:
