What is Organic Farming?


A Career in Organic Farming is very intriguing. Understanding Why one wants to choose a Career in Organic Farming is phenomenally more important than figuring out How to get into Organic Farming. While anyone can have an opinion on what Organic Farming entails; only a real professional can really explain it.

Pramod Kimothi has 10 years & 5 months of professional experience in Organic Farming. Pramod Kimothi defines Organic Farming as:

Organic Farming relies on fertilizers of organic origin such as compost manure, green manure, and bone meal and places emphasis on techniques such as crop rotation and companion planting. Biological pest control, mixed cropping and the fostering of insect predators are encouraged.

After completing my B Sc (Zoology, Botany, Geology) and Masters in Botany from PG College, Gopeshwar, I worked as a JRF (Mistletoe) at DBS College. I have also worked with various NGOs before joining Navdanya Biodiversity Farm. I am Farm Incharge there.
