Organic Farming for higher crop yields


A Sneak-Peak Into The Current Organic Farming Yields: Factors That Influence Organic Farm Yields

 According to recent meta-analyses with global coverage, it illustrated that the organic crop yields are different significantly with increasing global conditions, management practices, crop kinds, legumes showing a considerably smaller yield gap than cereals or tubers, and so on. There is a multitude of significant factors in organic crop yielding. For instance, the supply of nitrogen (N) and control of perennial weeds are two of the most important yield-limiting factors in organic crop production. Additionally, the mass of harvest crop production through organic farming in specific geography is affected by several factors. These factors are grouped in a broad three key categories are mainly the following: 

       Technological factors (This includes agricultural practices, managerial decision, etc.),

       Biological factors (This includes diseases, insects, pests, weeds.), and

       Environmental factors (This includes climatic condition, soil fertility, topography, water quality, and so on.

These factors account for yield differences from one region to another on a global basis. 

Future Of Organic Farming 

The studies forecast the population growth to reach 9.7 billion by 2050! This figure shows the need for an increase of about 70% in food production to meet the mounting requirement. The technological, biological, and environmental factors require systematic monitoring and management techniques. Also, the weather phenomena have a great influence on the organic farming methodologies. For instance, water availability, air pollution, and temperature have a huge impact on the organic farm yields.

The need to increase crop production in many countries has resulted in the expansion of the land area for agriculture practices. Also, the intensification of cropland management through organic practices such as irrigation, use of large quantities of organic products like inorganic fertilizers and synthetic chemicals for pest and weed control, are on the rise. Such agriculture practices have produced outputs being the degradation of soil properties and water quality, acceleration of soil erosion, contamination of groundwater and decline of food quality. This also has resulted in a continuous/ viscous intensification initiatives to increase yields on existing farmland while decreasing the environmental impact of agriculture. This is where the benefits of organic farming come to save mankind come into being!

Prayana Organic Farms: Living The Organic Life With Best Organic Practices In Farming

Organic crop production is one of the alternative agricultural practices promoted for the reduction of environmental pollution. As organic farming experts and research specialists, the founders of Prayana Organic Farms strive to follow the best organic farming methods that replace chemical-dependent products.

At Prayana, we make it a point to conserve and regenerate soil properties, the maintenance of soil organic matter (SOM) has received considerable attention. We understand that SOM is considered key to soil health, its relationship with yield is considered as a result of local-scale differences in soils, climate, and farming systems. Even in such cases, our organic farms produce the best crop yields without affecting the soil health or the environment, as a whole. We ensure that all crucial and necessary factors are quantified and proper soil management techniques are carried out to ensure the most sustainable organic crop production in our luscious farms!
