If your arguments are true and correct then why can’t you come up with obtained results on your arguments? If you have the proofs to depend your statement, please come up and don’t comment without any base to your points.
If Vastu is not good, then which is good? Present architecture? You know life span of present constructions. Can you assure at least for 50 years? Take count of ancient Temples, buildings constructed with Vastu rules living for centuries withstand for further more time.
You know claptrap people are begging with ancient technics to cure their problems. You go and check in the same konkan area forests that who has gone there to cultivate delicious fruits and crops created by nature. Are you bigger then nature produced fruits which are nothing but medicine for people like you? Has your green revolution done something for it? Human being is poppet in front of the nature be note, if not why tsunami was not stopped by people like you and why you scientific people are not granted rains at once in at least 15 days with your scientific tricks when our country is and was suffering with shortage of rains and drought effect? Do you have any formula for enhancing a human life about 100+ years?
You claim-The proponents of Natural Farming, et al make a lot of claims which are more of opinions rather than fact.
Maybe even this statement is.
Now what is your claim against Natural Farming? Which farm practice you are advocating? How good is your farming practice for which you are advocating? Will you may not effected with the consumption of contaminated food products provided by green revolution.
Your claim-But my amazement is regarding the credulity of the general public that is ready to agree with any untested claim so long as it is analogous or emphatic to their general world-view. Nobody, or rather very few think for themselves and subject the claim to scientific method and enquiry.
Which is your technology proved with scientific method? How you scientifically inquired about Natural Farming? What is the base of your quire? Have you practically cultivated any crop in your method to oppose the Natural Farming? If yes, then come up with results and proofs.
Natural Farming is a claim in point. Has anybody done empirical studies to show that the yields are better than in conventional farming. Over the short term and over the long term. Has any research been done by comparing control field lots with applied field lots? I would appreciate receiving some literature on this matter.
You are not sure that which is true and correct how you can comment blindly. You should complete empirical study to know yields of both farming methods before writing here. I can teach lessons about how better the natural farming practice is better than green revolution for not only human being but also for the mother earth and its nature.
I growing my food with natural way and My tamarind trees are more than 100 year old giving great fruits with shelf life. I growing Papaya from past three years and still it is giving very tasteful fruits where in my neighboring farmer grown the said papaya with chemical farming and ended up within 20 months with huge loss and my papaya plants are still giving healthy fruits which was taste by few members of this forum. (Dear Hegde you can comment on the taste and shelf life of those fruits and vegetables you tasted on last month) Has any crop which is of the contribution of green revolution and still it is giving healthy produce?
You claim-For example, the role that earthworms play in the soil has been researched empirically, with scientists tabulating the number of earthworms, soil porosity,etc. Has natural farming done something similar?
What are the results of scientific research? It is proved that Local earthworms can do great work for enhancing soil fertility as well as increasing agriculture productivity.
Your claim-Again, natural farming is touted as the panacea for all farming issues and many proponents claim that its tenets were followed by our ancestors. The same thing is touted for ayurveda, unani, etc. How come famine and pestilence scoured ancient India and death rates and infant mortality was supra 8% figures, until allopathy, hygiene, green revolution, etc came along?
Are you personally cultivating to arrive that your farming method is true and correct? Without you doing practical experiment, how can you comment on other farming method, which you do not know completely. What is your expertise about allopathy, Ayurveda, Unani, hygiene and green revolution? What is the life expectancy now? Can you guarantee of 100 years? I can prove that people born before your green revolution were lived more than 100 years with their pure life style and with the strength of the food they consumed?
Your claim-I think anybody can safely say that if Dr Swaminathan, Dr Borlaug, etc had not developed high yielding rice and wheat varieties, we would not have been born today or if we were, then seriously malnourished. Thank God our rulers did not go for organic or natural or spiritual farming.
Yes, they developed and same technology was resulted like storm and now it is flat & utterly failed to maintain the same productivity. Now green revolution is utter flap show and it has lost its charm as all agri products grown through chemical farming is contaminated with pesticides and poisons chemicals and people are losing their health. Whatever vegetables and food products eating now is nothing but poison. Soils of chemical farming land soils are became very dear to all deceases by losing resistance power in the soil to cope up with any possible defects. Are you sure that no one is malnourished? If yes then what and where is the data? A knowledgeable farmer is better than any one in the universe not only for agriculture but to safe gourd this universe.
People are more to racing on storms of myths and their whims and fancies to come and ditch with rock solid system which was withstanded for centuries to provide healthy life enjoyed by our elders and finally disappear in front of the eyes of whom you are opposing.
