Organic farming ensures safer, healthier world: Expert

Organic food is not prepared using chemical fertilizers. It does not contain any traces of chemicals and thus does not affect the human body in negative ways. This apart, organic food is tastier than conventional food and they are usually directly picked from farms and are fresh, said retired Professor A Mahakud, while addressing the audience at a workshop on safe food and organic farming organised by Vision Eco-Farm and Living Farms here.

Prof Mahakud, who also practices organic farming, added that as harmful chemicals are not used in organic farming, there is minimal soil, air, and water pollution. Thus it ensures environmental safety and a safer and healthier world for future generations to live in.
