Farming : A Complete Solution for living a healthy life | Prem Singh | TEDxSVC
कहीं धूप है , कहीं छाँव है,जलते तेरे पाँव हैं,धरा के विपरीत बहती तेरी नाव है।जिसने अन्न दिया उसे कहते भगवान हैं,जिसने भूख मिटाई वो मेरे देश का किसान है। In the parched, brown landscape of Uttar Pradesh's Bundelkhand region, Prem Singh's farm is an exception. Through his relentless diligence, Mr. Singh transformed his land to a source of steady revenue thus becoming an inspiration for many. Mr. Singh believes that his experiment with ''sustainable and traditional farming" could be replicated at a larger level and pave the way for a policy change In the parched, brown landscape of Uttar Pradesh’s Bundelkhand region, where hundreds of distressed farmers have taken their lives in the past few decades or have been forced to migrate, Prem Singh’s farm is an exception.
In the fabulous green farm, there is plenty for everyone: abundance of water-bodies for animals to drink from, many fruit-bearing trees, a steady produce of organic products, healthy cattle, well-nourished soil and natural fertilizers and, importantly, a steady flow of income. Mr. Singh believes that his experiment with “sustainable and traditional farming” could be replicated at a larger level, and could pave the way for a policy change.
The idea is to ensure the prosperity of the farmer’s family, ecological balance and food security of the country.
Key elements of this approach are crop rotation, organic farming, animal husbandry, food processing, planting and research for improving soil fertility and seed development.
