Let me introduce to you first. I am a farmer for past 1.5 years. Before that I was in some different profession. I am growing vegetables with very little success. In this course of time I came to know that keeping soil healthy is the foremost importance of agriculture.
There are different name attached to different practices and I assume all are good. But my effort here is to go to the basics of all - what are those ACTIVITY we need to perform and what BENEFIT it gives to the soil and plant - be it preventive or protective.
I request all experts in their chosen field to share your valuable knowledge and experience in this regard or probably what you are practicing in your farm.
Please keep this thread so enrich that it becomes a guideline for everyone.
I am very frequent reader of this forum. So I request Sri, Chandra, Viks, AK, rcdixit, gprao and others whom i missed to initiate this and put your valuable comments time to time.
