Zero budget farming could meet countrys 2050 food requirement

CHENNAI: India’s population would touch 162 crore by 2050 and the country’s food grain requirement would be 50 crore tonnes. Agricultural production has to be doubled from the existing quantity and zero budget spiritual farming could be a step in that direction, said renowned agriculturalist Subash Palekar on Friday.
In zero budget farming, farmers are discouraged to buy market products like chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
