Vizianagaram: T Vijay Kumar, advisor to the AP government (agriculture and cooperation), said that indiscriminate usage of chemicals in agrarian sector causes global warming and most developed nations are considering this as a serious issue and working on minimising the usage of chemicals and fertilizers in farming.
Participating in a programme held here on Monday, he said the quality in food has come down when compared to previous days and even water, food and every agriculture product was contaminated with residuals of chemicals. “We are consuming less nutrient food as the grains don't have enough proteins and vitamins too. If the same situation continues for some more years, the future will be terrific.
The next generation may not consume even pure water too. Many more American countries are facing hurricanes and other natural calamities due to imbalance in nature. The carbon percentage has been abnormally raising in the environment and unless we bring it down, every human being and other creatures will die,” he said.
He said many developed countries were planning to produce food grains and others without tilling the land and added we should bring down the global temperature by protecting the nature and by avoiding hazardous chemicals. Even the United Nations was also looking into this alarming situation and working on it, he pointed out and added the zero budget natural farming was one of the best methods to reduce the carbon dioxide and other hazardous particles in the environment.
He said every state in the India was looking towards Andhra Pradesh and trying to imbibe it for successfully implementing ZBNF and getting good results. Dr D Pari Naidu, founder of Jattu trust, said that natural farming was the best way to protect the environment and we should propagate the module by convincing the farmers to practice this system.
