Organic Cotton Farming

Organic Farming

can be defined as a production system that sustains the health of the soils, ecosystems biodiversity and people.

The use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics hormone stimulants growth regulators or livestock feed additives to grow crops and raise animals are not allowed in organic farming.It could take up to three years for a conventional farmland to convert to organic.

Organic products include textiles produced from organic cotton, drinks, agricultural inputs such as fertilizers, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and many others.
Organic agriculture is both beneficial to the producers and the consumers. Synthetic inputs may be easy to use, but pose some dangers to the soil, the environment, the producers and the consumers in the long term.

Organic Agriculture

mitigates the effects of climate change. It reduces greenhouse gases because fossil fuel-based fertilisers and most synthetic pesticides are prohibited in Organic farming.

The production of these farm chemicals are energy intensive and organic practices do not only reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but also put carbon back into the soil to help slow down climate change. The resultant effect of organic practices which help the health of the soil and also helps farmers to adapt to drought, flooding, and intense storms that are increasing due to climate change.

In aligning with climate adaptation and mitigation, Farmfixers will be adopting precision agriculture by use of the drone technology in managing the soil nutrients and monitoring the health of the crop. Precision agriculture will help mitigate these emissions by enabling farmers to apply fertilizers and other inputs more precisely and efficiently

Strategically, Farmfixers has incorporated ICT in the adaptation of climate change through the practice of precision agriculture technology . Precision agriculture technology has helped us mitigate emissions by enabling us to apply fertilizers and other inputs more precisely and efficiently. This has helped us reduce the amount of excess nutrients which can be converted into greenhouse gases.
