EcoFarms and the
Indian Farmers
  Modern research and an understanding of the organic way of life show that there are many strong reasons why we all should choose to go organic.

Here are just a few :-

An organic product :-

1. Keeps chemicals out of the air, water, soil and our bodies.

2. Reduces off-farm pollution.
Non-organic farming doesn't only pollute the land and the farmers; it also harms the environment. Pesticides affect non-farm communities with odourless and invisible poisons. Synthetic fertilizers drifting downstream can even create dead zones in delicate ocean environments, such as the one in the Gulf of Mexico which is now larger than 22,000 sq km!

3. Protects future generations.
Studies show that even unborn children are at risk in the womb from the harmful effects of chemicals. Pesticides can adversely affect the nervous system, increase the risk of cancer, and decrease fertility.

4. Builds a healthy soil.
It has been proved that feeding the soil with organic matter instead of ammonia and other synthetic fertilizers increases the nutrient content in the produce.

5. Promotes biodiversity.
Organic farms are oases of thriving and diverse habitats of many species of animal, bird and insect lives. Native plants, birds and hawks return usually after the first season of organic practices; beneficial insects allow for a greater balance, and indigenous animals find these farms a safe haven. In fact, an organic farm is the equivalent of reforestation.
