A helicopter soaring through the winds ejected a pale grey smoke over the farm. Puffing along the copter caught hidden behind the meadows but what is this fragment of smoke muffled over the farm and now massively submerging the surrounding air into its foul smell – the answer can be said even with the burning eyes kept close – PESTICIDES, the so called friend of farmers and toxic for the greenies who are aware.
That shiny, white, cloud like soft versatile natural fiber cotton covered underneath and at times sprayed with poisons. Cotton is used for varied industries, prominently textile. It has a leading demand worldwide and is categorized as a cash crop. To cope up with this demand, mankind has sailed towards a shortcut of inorganic farming methods – application of pesticides and few mechanics. But it has sprung many dire and earth shaking consequences because of it. It has harmed wildlife and human race as well. Multitudes are clasped in the palms of fatal diseases like cancer, skin diseases, genetic deformations for upcoming generations, etc. its influence will stay intact for few chains of centuries, even if its application is shaken off. The seeds of toxicity are sown very deeply without a concern that even the sweetness of the atmosphere, soil and ground water beneath the stratum of the earth is contaminated enormously.
We do have a resolution called Organic – the method to escape such a catastrophe yet we are reluctant to pursue it. Our purpose is to deliver vigilance and demonstrate irrefutable benefits and gather up advocacy to spread further. Organic farming emphasizes duly upon the discreet ways to explore and fortify the society and ecosystem against any damages. As we rip away the application of the pesticides apparently all its negative effects pull over. No compromises are made with the health of the farmers. The farms entangled in the influence of the pesticides are barbed to enter for a particular time after its application but due to lack of awareness people do not take precautions and continue working in the farm ceaselessly which results in the health of the farmer.
But there is a ray of hope to ignore the trend and use organic farming methods. It has ingenious ways which steadfast eco-friendly processing which ultimately leads in the reduction in occurrence of allergies, fertility of the soil is maintained and soil structure is improved as the prevention of soil erosion turns stronger. Moreover the product obtained is comparatively healthier like in the case of cotton the quality of the cotton extracted through organic farming is better than the one through the conventional methods of farming. There are lot more advantages which nature brings with it through the medium of Organic Farming.
Nature is a part of everyone’s life not solely of human race but entire bio-diversity. So let us stay ardent to render into an eco-friendly GREEN LIFE!!!
