‘Krishi’ means ‘farming’ and ‘yoga’ means ‘harmony’. By combining time-tested, traditional and eco-friendly farming practices in line with ecological principles and advanced permaculture methods, we have developed an efficient, high-yielding and sustainable farming system called Krishi Yoga.
Krishi Yoga design & methods Include:
- Fulfilling Human Nutrition Needs
- Enhancing environmental quality and nature resources that the agricultural economy depends on
- Making the most efficient use of farm resources and integrating appropriate natural biological cycles
- Sustaining the economic viability of the farm
- Enhancing the quality of life for farmers and the society as a whole.
- Working as closely as possible in closed cycles and using in farm and local resources.
- Preservation and enhancement of natural fertility of the soils.
- Avoiding all forms of pollution that arise from farming operations.
- Limited tillage to minimise damage to the soil ecosystem.
- Producing foods and herbs of optimal nutritional value.
- Reducing the usage of non-renewable resources in agriculture, including fossil fuels.
- Ensuring the farm produce agri-waste products are composted and re-used as fertilizers.
- We do everything possible on the farm to create natural systems including farm landscape that is fitting for a healthy and efficient natural ecosystem. We retain the natural cycles of nature wherein the organic waste material produced from one process becomes a raw material for another process that follows it. This is vital for sustainable agriculture. After all, a farm is a microcosm of a larger natural ecosystem and not a factory. Crop diversity and integration of plants and animals in agriculture also paves the way for self-sustainability of the farmland.
