Zero Budget Natural Farming: An Agricultural Revolution is Taking Shape in India

Our story follows Satyavati – a young woman from the Araku Valley in Andhra Pradesh, India, as she compels her community to adopt a farming practice that is revolutionizing small-scale farming across India. Zero Budget Natural Farming (ZBNF) is a farming practice that believes in the natural growth of crops without adding any fertilizers and pesticides, or any other foreign elements. After decades of conventional agriculture, farmers in India found themselves in debt traps owing to loans taken to meet the high cost of fertilizers and pesticides. ZBNF promises not only to alleviate farmer debt, but also to increase yields, while alleviating the impacts of climate change, deforestation and land degradation.

  1. the UN originally introduced the toxic farming chemicals to countries like India. Now everyone realizes how dangerous they are the UN is trying to save face and look like the good guy all of a sudden.

  2. there is no manmade global climate chage. western leftists have tried to squash the developing nations growth by preaching that fantasy and punishing those who try hard to become developed and wealthy. they want to keep the quaint natives in line, and dependent on them for their survival. the UN is evil and needs to be disbanded.

  3. Do we realise that India has a history of famines? We are essentially undoing the Green Revolution and we won't be able to feed such a large population of 1.4 Billion people with traditional methods. Natural farming is also very prone to crop failure and pest attacks.

  4. India's traditional farming methods would be of benefit to the rest of the world. Soil in Germany is depleted, for example, and fertilizers only contain a handful of minerals, I would expect, not the same as restoring the soil, and pesticide-damaged when seen as an eco system.

  5. Imagine if a few companies can control the seeds and food supply of the world; they have many leverages over the supply side. Once they own the supply-side with captive demand, they can then pretty much dance around the regulation.

  6. Indian traditional techniques are more scientific than the latest scientific techniques. It was unfortunate that India got diverted in first place but then again it was for the betterment of the world

  7. 食べ物を 適当食べること.

    음식들을 너무먹어, 죽는이들이 많은데,살아있는것처럼 있다고 하심.가난한 이들과 나눠먹고,적당히 먹어야한다고 하심.
    God(Our Lord),given this messages.

  8. Except they're still doing conventional agriculture: combating nature instead of working with it. Nature is far more intelligent than us: it has more than 4 billion years of experience if we may believe the official estimates. We should observe and listen to what it has to say. Food is not hard to grow naturally, nature always works towards abundance, because that is wat maintains it and guarantees perpetuation of its lifecycle. Nature wants to create forests, not rows of veggies. For anyone interested, look into Syntropic Farming and how it could help to create an abundance of food whilst helping nature to maintain its lifecycle.
