Sustainable agriculture presentation

  2. 2. INTRODUCTION • Sustainable agriculture is the production of food, fiber, or other plant or animal products using farming techniques that protect the environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare.
  3. 3. GOALS 1) Environmental Health 2) Economic Profitability 3) Social and Economic equity
  4. 4. BENEFITS • Sustainable agriculture maintains the fertility of soil. • It reduces land degradation and soil erosion. • It aim at reducing water consumption in farming • It increases the biodiversity of an area.
  5. 5. METHODS • Crop rotation. • Cover crops. • Soil enrichment. • Natural pest predators. • Integrated pest management.
  6. 6. CROP ROTATION • Crop rotation is the practice of growing a series of dissimilar or different types of crops in the same area in sequenced seasons to maintain the fertility of soil.
  7. 7. COVER CROPS • A cover crop is a type of plant grown primarily to suppress weeds, manage soil erosion and improve soil fertility and quality. Ex. Sorghum, clover, etc.
  8. 8. SOIL ENRICHMENT • It is a process of adding suppliments in the soil to increase its quality and productivity. Ex. Compost and lime.
  9. 9. NATURAL PEST PREDATORS • It is a method of controlling pests like- insects and weed, using other organisms(predators) which are their enemies.
  10. 10. INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT • IPM is an ecosystem-based strategy that focuses on long-term prevention of pests or their damage through a combination of techniques such as biological control and modification of cultural techniques.
  11. 11. PROCESS OF IPM Pyramid of IPM
  12. 12. NATIONAL MISSION FOR SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE (NMSA) • NMSA derives its mandate from Sustainable Agriculture Mission which is one of the eight Missions outlined under National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC). • The focus of NMSA will be to infuse the judicious utilization of resources of commons through community based approach.
  13. 13. OBJECTIVES OF (NMSA) • To conserve natural resources through appropriate soil and moisture conservation measures. • To make agriculture more productive, sustainable, remunerative and climate resilient by promoting location specific Integrated/Composite Farming Systems. • To optimize utilization of water resources through efficient water management to expand coverage for achieving ‘more crop per drop.
