NO! neither can conventional farming. Feeding the world requires system wide collaborative approach that incorporates all systems of farming while taking into consideration the wider issues of environment conservation
Why is organic farming relevant to us in Kenya?
75% of our farmers are small scale farmers who experience difficulties in obtaining synthetic agricultural inputs due to prohibitive prices.
These are the farmers who are mainly targeted in organic farming so that they can use resources within their environment sustainable in their farming methods
Organic farming is reduced cost of inputs in agriculture, use of compost, natural or botanical pesticides and other local inputs have reduced cost and farmers see organic farming that is affordable and manageable
