‘Sustainable Farming for a Better Future’

4 December, 2022

Children are the future owners of the planet Earth. As young nature lovers, they must save natural resources for future needs while using them wisely.

So it is important to learn how to make our farming practices sustainable to obtain a good harvest that is healthy and nutritious without polluting the environment. We have to find ways and means to minimise the wastage of water, conserve the soil, conserve biodiversity and use organic fertiliser instead of chemical fertiliser. There are lots of indigenous and modern cultivation methods which we can apply successfully to make our farming sustainable and nature-friendly.
