The farm and the farmers form the heart of our agricultural ecosystem. Nurturing Nature and bringing Organic products is our Farmerâ€™s main motive. This farmer uses Earthworms to enrich the soil, retaining the Fertility of the land.
A small farmer from the Chhattisgarh region shows how he allows nature to enrich the soil for nutritious outcomes with the use of Natural Pesticides and Earthworms. The extensive use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers to boost crop yields may result in good yields and productivity but it deteriorates the efficiency of the soil, gradually causing a steep fall in biodiversity. Earthworms are considered as one of the most important soil animals. They are capable of maintaining the fertility of the soil and therefore play a vital role in sustainability.
Popularly also known as â€˜Farmerâ€™s friendâ€™. These â€˜Soil Engineersâ€™ are one of the major decomposers of organic matter. It converts biodegradable materials and organic wastes into nutrient-rich products, emerging from their burrows to deposit the fecal matter (vermicast) on the surface. This farmer uses Earthworms to increase fertility ensuring a complete organic farming method. He improves the soil health as Earthworms make the soil porous, increases the water infiltration rate while reducing soil erosion.
