Agriculture has changed drastically especially since World war 2. Food and fibre productivity soared through the new technologies, mechanization and increased chemical use to maximise production.
Although these changes have had positive effects and reduced many risks to farmers at the time, by killing pest and diseases with pesticides and herbicides and increasing production through chemical fertilisers. They have also had significant costs.
Among these are top soil depletion, ground water contamination, resulting now in increasing costs of production and an increase in carcinogenic.
Sustainable Agriculture “Must be integrated to meet the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”
Making the transition to sustainable agriculture is a process. It is important to realize that each small step towards organic fertiliser conversion can a big difference and can contribute to advancing the entire system.
The key to moving forward is to take that next step………No Frills can help you ….
We must all take that steps in order to achieve Sustainable living.
