These simplified guides can help farmers reduce their production cost andbecome self reliant with renewable crop protection products they can grow andformulate in their own farms, together with their commercial crops and livestock.They can also make their own fertilizers and soil amendments that will turn their land into productive farms. This can make farmers self reliant and self sustainingThrough Natural Farming, we can feed the increasing population of theworld with healthful food free from toxic chemical residue.
To understand natural farming we need to know the cycle of life andmatter. Natural farming as we envision is learning nature’s laws, and using themwith care. Take note:
Natural Laws are the laws of God who created Nature.
Natural farming is a culture where plants are grown in 100% naturalenvironment with the least human interference and no harmful chemicals or synthetic products used. It is practically leaving the crops grow and produce intheir natural environment, and man comes enhances the natural conditions toimprove productivity. Then, harvest or gather its products for man’s use.However, in the context of our discussion, we will be introducing farming systemsthat will employ and apply more and more organic and biological farm practices.Dr. Saturnina Halos, an agricultural scientist says: “Strictly speaking,farming interferes with nature. There are a lot of human interventions in farming.”This is very true, and if we are not careful enough, we may totally lost natures’resources and capacity to produce the food that our growing population needs.We seek to learn natural organic and biological farming to safeguard theenvironment and sustain its productive capability.While there is a growing demand for organically grown fruits andvegetables, it is difficult and almost impossible not to use chemical products toincrease the production per unit area in a shorter period of time to meet thegrowing food demand of the increasing population. Besides plant roots andleaves can only absorb nutrients in their chemical form. Organic materials havefirst to be broken down into its basic chemical component to be utilized by plants.Synthetic chemical products being used in Agriculture were processed andsynthesized from organic and/or mineral materials.Before life was created, matter first existed. In the beginning we havewater, rocks, gases, light, solar energy, the earth and atmosphere. There was yetno life. (Read the Holy Scriptures ‘The Holy Bible’ Genesis on Creation). Whenthe environment became ready, life began to appear in many forms from singlecell to the complex form of plants and animals. We learn that evolution is God’scontinuing process of creation.
