Ecological farming, mantra for rich reap in Sundargarh

SUNDARGARH: Ecological farming has benefited several farmers of the district and elsewhere with many of them reaping profits through use of organic seeds.

Speaking about their experiences during the two-day Desi Chasi Sammelani here, a woman farmer, Nirmala Barla of Sundargarhs Balishankara block, said ecological farming brings more benefits and profits compared to the conventional method. By using indigenous seeds and natural manures, she managed to produce about 12 quintals of millets per acre.
