  • To conserve environment and natural resources .
  • To provide a suitable environment for organic farming and quality food products.
  • To raise livestock to provide nutritious foods such as eggs and dairy products.
  • To utilize animal wastes for enriching the soil.
  • To reduce the environmental sufferings caused by the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.
  • To encourage stall-feeding in order to reduce deterioration of grazing grounds.

3. The Context (150 words):

The institution considers cow as a good omen for all the beginnings so the cow shed is located at the entrance.

Organic farming provides nutritious food, enriches soil quality and reduces the loss of beneficial soil microorganisms.

Organic farming is economical, which requires low investments for seeds, and manures.

Animals need to live in a suitable environment, eat a suitable diet, and exhibit normal behavior patterns, to stay apart from other animals and to be protected from pain, suffering, injury and disease.

The nurtured vegetables and greens, the milk and eggs yielded by the animals are sold to the management and staff members. There is huge demand for organic products. Thus the good return is obtained on investments. The animal wastes are utilized as manures for the purpose of organic farming. It inculcates the attitude of self-employability with low investment among the student community.

Organic farming is free from chemical fertilizers and pesticides, hence it is environment friendly.

4. The Practice (400 words):

Organic farming relies on the natural breakdown of organic matter for the nutritious growth and development. It replaces the conventional methods, which degrade the quality of soil, water and air towards the attainment of quantity with low quality.

Vegetation through eco-friendly pesticides and biological fertilizers derived primarily from animal and plant wastes, as well as nitrogen-fixing cover crops are beneficial to human health and ecosystem.

Organic farming practices adequate water supply technique so that water is conserved. A particular area is allotted for each class so that the students can effectively participate in organic farming with a great team spirit.

Organic livestock are managed in a way that conserves natural resources and biodiversity. Organic livestock benefits humans and the environment by focusing on pasture, soil quality and limiting the use of antibiotics and hormones. Pasture-based livestock operations have the greatest potential for carbon sequestration of all farming approaches. Organically raised animals also enjoy a higher quality of life than conventionally raised animals.

Plants are encouraged to send out more and deeper roots when they are grazed. Those roots are constantly sloughed off and degrade in the soil, increasing soil biomass and fertility while also removing carbon from the atmosphere. Rotational grazing also aids in the prevention of erosion and runoff from crops.

An animal's welfare is ensured when the animals are neither fear nor distress

This practice include crop rotation between plant families, techniques to build soil organic matter compost and properly handled animal manures, disease tolerant plants, scouting for insect and disease pests, proper disposal of diseased crop residue and good sanitation, and maintaining biodiversity.

Through this practice, proper agriculture techniques are inculcated in young minds.
