Author(s): Pallavi Varshney, Swastik Suresh
Abstract: Farming is the practice of agriculture in an area devoted to agricultural processes usually on the outskirts of a city. It is the domestication of animals, cultivation of plants and other forms of life for food, fiber and medicinal products to sustain and enhance human life. Nowadays farming is done by means of machinery, chemical fertilizers and pesticides. This has created unemployment and diminished the quality of soil and food grains. People are helpless and forced to eat the food available to them, although many are aware that the food they consume is not safe for health. The time has now come to give serious consideration to the growth of ayurvedic herbs by organic means. The present study was carried out to review the concept of organic farming and to create awareness amongst the policymakers about its benefits for the welfare of all.
