Zero Budget Natural Farming

Farming Consultancy

ZBNF

Zero Budget Natural Farming (ZBNF) or holistic agriculture is a method of agriculture that counters the commercial expenditure and market dependency of farmers for the inputs like fertilisers and pesticides. The method involves locally obtainable natural bio-degradable materials and combine scientific knowledge of ecology and modern technology with traditional farming practices based on naturally occurring biological processes. Zero budget farming methods are promoted by agri-scientists like Subhash Palekar[1] and Masanobu Fukuoka (Natural Farming). While conventional agriculture uses synthetic pesticides and water-soluble synthetically purified fertilizers, zero budget farmers are restricted by regulations to using natural pesticides and fertilizers.

The principal methods of ZBNF include crop rotation, green manures and compost, biological pest control, and mechanical cultivation. These measures use the natural environment to enhance agricultural productivity: legumes are planted to fix nitrogen into the soil, natural insect predators are encouraged, crops are rotated to confuse pests and renew soil, and natural materials such as potassium bicarbonate[2] and mulches are used to control disease and weeds. Natural farmers are careful in their selection of plant breeds, and organic researchers produce hardier plants through plant breeding rather than genetic engineering.
