Zero Budget Farming — A Reality Check for Organic Farming in India.

While I read, “I too had a dream” by Verghese Kurien. The thing that stuck to my mind was Amul became successful due to presence of Bombay (A potential market) nearby it and again Managing the surplus milk (Food Processing) produced by the cooperative (Again a great way of dealing trivial problems by individuals) and of course the WORK ETHICS imparted by Kurien. While talking any innovative way of doing farming whether Chemical or Natural and again claiming higher yield and quality produce, It is seen successful only when farmers get well paid, also getting net profit and they think their ..
