Go Organic, Go Healthy The term ‘Organic’ refers to the way in which farmers grow and process the agricultural products such as the fruits, vegetables, dairy products and meat. They are grown in safe soil, away from medications, artificial fertilizers or any deadly chemical pesticides. Natural fertilizers like manure and compost are used which are the reasons behind the benefits the organic food provides. With the rise in illness and increasing health hazards people have become more aware and conscious about healthy self improvement needs. Apart from keeping the human body healthy, organic foods also keep the environment healthy by protecting neighboring plants and animals from chemicals, reducing soil and water pollution.
• The survey will also analyse the ethical issues regarding the idea. 1.4.3. Discussion: • To compare the growth rate, quality of food, quantity of food and environmental damage done by crops grown by traditional farming verses vertical farming through a practical experiment. 1.5. Context The research will assist in analysing the impact and the underlying facts about vertical farming, thus verifying the hypothesis.
The PLC works closely with individual farmers, farmers groups and cooperatives. It provides inputs to farmers and buys their produce. Originally SolaGrow took the production and marketing of potato seed as core business. Since 2010 the company focused on two sides: 1) to take the whole potato chain into consideration, from seed to consumption potatoes to market, and 2) to include the seeds and markets of the rotational crops such as linseed, vegetables, and malting barley. The company realized that farmers tend to move to mono cropping when they once get good profit from a specific crop and wants to prevent this negative trend by creating awareness on this topic of rotation and by offering other alternative crops to the farmers.
Technology in Agriculture TO EDIT AND FIX FOR APRIL Technology has played an integral role in the process of developing the agricultural industry. Today it is possible to grow crops in a desert type environment by use of agricultural biotechnology. With this technology, plants have been engineered to survive in drought conditions. Through genetic engineering scientists have managed to introduce traits into existing genes with a goal of making crops resistant to droughts and pests. An example, A bacterium known as ”Bacillus Thuringiensis” acts like a reservoir , it enables crops to be insect-resistant , so these genetically modified crops will grow without any interference from pests, these are one of the many advances due to technology.
Reason and Benefits of using LED grow lights for tomatoes LED grow lights for tomatoes are a great choice for farmers looking for ways to reduce energy costs for their indoor gardens. The efficiency and ability of LED lamps to produce different types of lights are some of the characteristics that make them more appealing than their counterpart HPS, fluorescent and other traditional lights. In addition, they are long-lasting, rugged and environmentally friendly. This means that they provide both financial and environmental benefits. Benefits of growing tomatoes in indoor farms There several advantages of growing tomatoes and other plants in greenhouses or other indoor facilities.
Rhetorical Analysis: Organic Farming In his article, “Organic Farming Healthier, More Efficient than Status Quo”, Anurag Muthyam, argues organic farming is a better farming method than conventional farming. He does so by first asking the audience where their food comes from drawing their interest into the topic. Throughout the article, Muthyam tells his audience about the potential good that can arise with choosing organic farming over conventional farming. Muthyam also explains the general concept of what is organic farming in the third paragraph after hooking the audience by telling them where their food comes from and how it is produced. After introducing the concept of organic farming, the author goes on to compare and contrast organic farming versus conventional farming.
Including farmer loans and forest conservation programs. When customers buy coffee, farmers can have a better future and more stable climate for the planet, and it helps create a long-term supply of the high-quality beans. Since, Starbuck paid a premium price to purchase farmers coffee beans, it is ensured fair transaction and safeguard farmer benefit. Regarding the principles for ethical sourcing, Conservation International has formulated a buying guidelines to address the issues. Called Coffee and Farmer Equity (C.A.F.E.)
Green Revolution: Impacts, Limitations The agricultural industry was able to produce a large amount of food because of green revolution and chemical fertilizers, synthetic herbicides and pesticides, high yield crops, and multiple crops. The Green Revolution program, which began more than a decade ago, has a great goal - raising global food supply and reducing global appetite. To achieve this, farmers started cultivating land using new agricultural practices. These techniques worked, crop yield increased and fewer people were hungry. However, Green Revolution farming techniques have created some unwanted side effects - some of which are serious.
Precision Agriculture Market- what to look out for? Agriculture is essential given that it is the major source of food globally. Proper farming methods ensure that the crops grow healthily. Different farming and agriculture techniques help analyse the rotational patterns to keep the soil nourished and fertile for a longer duration. In spite of major challenges such as increasing labour costs, degrading environment, low selling price and much more, farmers are willing to try new methods.
In this research investigation I will be researching organic versus inorganic foods and textiles and further investigating the impact of the way they affect our environment, how they affect ones health, the effect they have on our economy and then giving my own opinion and a motivation on the research I conducted. WHAT IS ORGANIC FOOD? Organic food is food which is produced using environmentally and animal friendly farming and agricultural methods. The demand for organic foods comes from health-conscious people who have become aware of the effects that inorganic or foreign substances may have on their bodies and health. Many people are also concerned with preserving nature and the planet.
