एके काळी भारताला “सोने कि चिडिया ” म्हटले जाई. असा आपला गौरवाने उल्लेख केला जात असे कारण भारत आधी पासून कृषी प्रधान प्रदेश आहे. संपन्नतेचे, ऐश्वर्याचे प्रतीक म्हणजे सोने. भारतातील संपूर्ण शेती पद्धती वैदिक (नैसर्गिक) ज्ञानाचा वापर करून हवामानाच्या शक्यतांचा अभ्यास करून, आणि देशी बियाणांचा वापर करीत पर्यावरण संतुलित राहील अशा पद्धतीने केली जात होती. परंतु दिवसेंदिवस वाढणाऱ्या लोकसंख्येला लागणाऱ्या अन्नामुळे देशामध्ये अन्नधान्याची समस्या उभी राहिली त्यामुळे हरित क्रांती (१९६७ – १९७८ ) मुळे दरडोई उत्पादकता वाढवण्यात आली आणि हायब्रीड -संकरित बियाणे जन्माला आले आणि सिंचनाच्या सोयी यामधून शेतीची क्रांती झाली. परंतु हायब्रीड बियाण्यांमुळे कीटकनाशकांची गरज आणि रासायनिक खतांची गरज जास्त पडू लागली. औषधांच्या आणि रासायानांच्या अती वापरामुळे पर्यावरणाचे संतुलन बिघडले. जमिनीतील सूक्ष्म-जैविक घटकांचा नाश झाल्याने जमिनी नापीक होऊ लागल्या. पर्यायाने खतांची कार्यक्षमता कमी झाली. या जमिनींच्या कमी कार्यक्षमतेमुळे रासायनिक खतांचा पुन्हा वापर खूपच वाढला आणि ह्या अश्या चक्रव्यूहात अजूनपण अधुनिक शेती अडकलेली आहे.

The rampant use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers has brought about a decline in soil fertility and crop health across the world. Crops today are more prone to diseases, deficiencies etc. This realization has marked the advent of organic farming globally. Organic foods boast of being residue free and are much costlier than locally available produce. But is organic farming really a new age concept?

Did you know that 49 percent of India’s population is associated with agriculture, but their contribution is just 15 percent in the total GDP?
