Intensive use of Ukrainian chernozems resource has led to many serious problems. One of them is soil depletion. This negative trend was recorded back in 2019 year.
The situation is particularly difficult in the irrigated vegetable farming. And the productivity of this industry determines, among other things, the prices in shops.
Organic farming is one of the main and most effective solutions of this problem. Now the technology has become a powerful trend.
Organic farming clubs are appearing in Ukraine and all over the world. . Producers use the label “organic products” in advertisements, etc.
Let’s try to understand what the advantages of this approach are and whether it is real to comply with its strict standards.
ADVANTAGES OF THE ORGANIC FARMING
This farming system will not be a magic wand and will not supersede other farming methods. But it does have some serious advantages:
THE LAND IS LESS DEPLETED
Farmers know that there are limits to ploughed area in Ukraine. In different regions this figure reaches 80-95%. In comparison, in USA about 25% of land is ploughed, in Germany and Canada about 48%.
Now Ukrainian farms are solving problems associated with many years of extensive farming practice. . One of peculiarities of organic farming is that in the process of farming attention is paid to formation and stabilization of soils.
As a result of transfer to organic farming the soil resources are depleted more slowly.
FOODS THAT ARE HEALTHIER FOR THE BODY
In organic farming plants are not treated with substances that can be accumulated in them and bring harm to humans. Special farming techniques also increase the content of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.
In other words, the finished product will not only be healthier, but also safer for all consumers.
THE ENVIRONMENT IS PRESERVED
Conventional farming practices have a major impact on the environment. Fertilizers and pesticides enter the soil. They spread and pollute water.
When organic farming is implemented, the burden on the environment is minimal.
Biopreparations for organic farming make farming harmless to humans and nature.
The demand for organic products has been increasing all the time. Therefore, transfer to this farming system can be a good solution not only for nature, but also for development of agricultural enterprise as a whole.
ORGANIC FARMING AND PLANT PROTECTION. HOW TO COMBINE?
One of the fears that stop farmers from transfer to organic farming is the difficulty in protecting the plants. In the mind of most farmers, without modern, aggressive chemicals protecting fields from weeds and pests is simply unreal. In fact, there is a whole complex of technologies that solve this problem:
- Introducing catch crops into the crop rotation that inhibit weed growth. Most often these are wheat, buckwheat, cabbage, marrow, various annual and perennial grasses;
