'Organic farming is far more dangerous than atom bomb'
Subhash Palekar, the inventor of the Zero Budget Spiritual Farming process, has made this shocking statement that Organic Farming is worse than the atom bomb. Speaking to a national daily, he proposed the Subhash Palekar Natural Farming (SPNF) method as the ideal one that can help the government in its mission to double farmers' incomes.
Saying that most of the organic farming methods followed by farmers in India are alien, Palekar added that natural farming with Jeevamrutham, which is nothing but a mixture of the cow dung, urine, jaggery, flour and soil, is the best way out for the Indian farmer.
Palekar praised former AP CM Chandrababu Naidu for popularizing his method across the State. Last year, this is what Naidu had said about SPNF: "Subhash Palekar ji’s studies and work on Zero Budget Natural Farming are a gift to the nation. We assure him that the Subhash Palekar Natural Farming program will be implemented fully in Andhra Pradesh. The State will become a model for the nation and the world."
Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan and actor Prakash Raj have been private practitioners of this method in their farmhouses.
