Challa Pavan Kumar Reddy, a farmer’s son who is well-established in the joint replacement medical field and has recently returned to farming.
He travels throughout India and other countries as part of his job. He was hospitalized owing to infection-tainted food and water, which produced disease and other health difficulties, as a result of consuming outside food.
As a result, Reddy has learned the value of having agricultural knowledge as a member of a farming family. Why should I not cultivate both for myself and others? From the beginning, he’s been involved with agriculture.
“I used to help my father in agriculture when I was a kid, and I also had a strong interest in farming,” Reddy recalls. I used to come as a part of the team during business hours, but due to my health problems, I’ve had to put all of those business matters on hold.” Reddy’s main goal was to help society by allowing myself and others to enjoy a healthy lifestyle.
“I’ve begun natural farming all of those things,” he continued. But, at first, I adopted what we call “doing things the natural way,” which is what agriculture is all about. Why aren’t farmers being compensated more? Why don’t parents encourage their children to pursue careers in agriculture of the future?
In the three to four years it took me to complete my studies, I converted to cow-based agriculture by following my regular activities. It’s known as “Goadharitha Vyavasayam” in Telugu. “If you have a cow and everything, only agriculture will thrive,” Pavan says.
Farmers used to reside there with their families and friends in the early days.
Animals, on the other hand, are a part of their lives. They used to have one or two, depending on their acreage and cattle-keeping capacity. Obtaining cow dung and using it as manure for the cow and any other animals they have, such as goats and buffalo. They used to use manure in the production of food and agriculture, and they used to reap the benefits.
When the green revolution arrived, scientists created high-yield food types. When it comes to high-yielding types, more energy is required by doing one or two animals, which are insufficient for fertility. The farmer is going to get chemicals for chemical fertilization and then place them down. In addition to increased output, many people are suffering from health problems as a result of chemical fertilization.
- Nowadays, farmers are injecting chemicals into their farms and produce in order to reduce residues entering the human body, which leads to hospitalization. In the current situation, society spends more than 80% of its resources on hospitalization, with the remaining 20% devoted only to health issues.
Instead of spending 80% on medical and 20% on livelihood, they can live lavishly and assist nature and communities by boosting agriculture and farmers, among other things.
Explains the differences between organic farming and natural farming.
Natural farming refers to anything that comes from nature that we must produce in a natural manner, such as food. Let’s consider the case of mango cultivation. Nowadays, hybrid kinds have emerged, which are used in both production and fertilizer.
Organic farming is defined as the production of food for plants or the creation of any other goods that are not derived from natural sources. Take, for example, the growing popularity of terrace gardening.
The majority of people believe that cow excrement is used, although natural seeds are used instead.
Most of them use hybrid seeds, which can be classified as organic farming.
I exclusively practice natural farming, which implies that whatever comes from nature must be done in a natural manner. Let me explain the difference between inorganic and chemical farming.
When we use anything genetically modified and high yielding for production, it is called organic, and input everything we give apart from cow dung and which is not coming from nature, such as bio-fertilizers, is also called organic. but whatever we seed from seed to fertilizer has to come from nature. It has to come from nature, then it is natural farming, and only by doing natural farming can we be more lucrative and healthier as a community.
Nowadays, organic farming is more expensive than chemical farming. The only advantage of organic farming over chemical farming is that it is less hazardous to society and those who consume those products are safer than those who consume chemical inorganic products. However, if farmers promote natural farming and only eat natural farming foods, society and the entire world will be safer and healthier.
When a person who is unfamiliar with organic and natural products goes to the market to purchase a vegetable or fruit. So, how is it that he will discover that it is natural and organic?
Those who produce naturally that product are no longer widely advertised in the market; instead, they are available primarily to farmers and well-known individuals. Because the farmer who understands the fundamentals and is producing naturally is aware of the pains and values. Those who understand the worth of the items will seek out the farmers.
They don’t have access to sent to the market on any brand, and most of the people who don’t have time or information about farmers and contacts with farmers don’t have access to sent to the market on any brand. There’s a reason they’re seeking the best. Organic stores have opened; however there is no certification or similar program for natural farming from the Indian government.
Natural farming is basically doing what your forefathers did. And now we’re introducing our newest technology into that farming, which is limited to natural farming.
Organic products are widely available in the market because they are certified, and while the government has stated that it supports natural farming, most of the products we cannot identify in the market; however, there is only one brand called organic, and when you specify which product is organic and natural, even the store personnel will clarify whether it is natural or organic as of now.
We can’t decide what’s good and what’s terrible. Depending on the soil type, we must cultivate. We had to cultivate just black soil, yet heavy crops like maize or cotton or sugarcane could be grown on heavy soil.
“With digital farming, we can’t undertake proper cultivation on the system.” Finally, we must return to the land, where we must work. “We may have to absorb inputs from all around the world, and whatever new technology comes along, they must adapt,” he continues. “But before adapting, we must look into the world and see what our forefathers did.”
So, what message would you like to send to young people who are getting into organic farming full-time?
I may advise younger generations, in particular, not to follow all those on the internet or whatever it may be; just keep it in mind. You can also follow elders. Those who have performed miracles in agriculture may not be in the limelight. but they may be inside the soil and in communities; so wherever they are, you may call them and follow their 100% directions, and only then can you be successful.
