What is Zero Budget Natural Farming?
Zero Budget Natural Farming is a promising tool to minimize the dependence of farmers on purchased inputs, and reduces the cost of agriculture by relying on traditional field based technologies which lead to improved soil health.
Desi cow, its dung and urine play an important role from which various inputs are made on the farm and provide necessary nutrients to soil.
Other traditional practices such mulching the soil with biomass or keeping the soil covered with green cover round the year, even in the very low water availability situations, ensure sustained productivity even from the first year of adoption.
