“One size fits all “ does not applies in new generation farming practices .
Our family elders had done massive damage to our farmlands by following instructions of people who never soiled their hands themselves known as agro scientists , experts , researchers etc and preferred to work from air conditioned cubicles rather than field .
We can not blame our family elders as they were simple people , less literate and almost ignorant about big data / info etc.
New generation farming are based on BIG DATA !
Being an IT professional I guess you know what is BIG DATA explosion is all about !?
Farming is daunting industry in the past and will remain same in the future .
It’s easy to romanticise the idea of having a farm and living off the land.
Having some dirt under your fingernails and feeling the physical realities of farm work can help you decide if you are well suited to farming.
One of the key things to remember is farming is not a career or a job or business .
It’s a way of life !
One of guiding philosophies of a successful new generation farming is to promote health for all .– nature ,animal and human community !
Just imagine about hunter-gatherers of “Fertile Crescent” era( 10000 BC ) who had traveled to the area in search of food, began to harvest (gather) wild grains they found growing there.
They scattered spare grains on the ground to grow more food and began farming .
Walk alone in your farm journey , learn about top soil and underground soil , weed , pests and plants through trial and error .
Chalk out your own farming model and earn fairly not ransom !
