Here are a few features of sustainable farming. Depending on the farming practice, the reader would have to explore different angles. For instance, the cultivation of avocado pear orchids will be a lot different from the sustainable farming practices that would need to be applied to the free range slaughter of animal stock, from pigs to poultry, familiar and preferred protein choices for millions of people around the world.
And do note that in order for free range farming to be sustainable, it also needs to be wholly indicative of organic farming practices. One key point to be made in this regard is that the free range farmers are not intoxicating their produce with pesticides and bacterial feeds. The same imperatives do certainly apply to the avocado farmer, and all other fruit and vegetable producers. And there has been a huge swing towards utilizing what is known as bio-minerals.
Farmers are also using these bio-minerals to improve the quality of the soil that they are using. And in order to maintain the sustainability of fertilizing the soil, the farmers do need to ensure that the soil is not damaged or overused. And by using sustainable and environmentally friendly fertilizing materials, farmers are now in a good position to improve their profit potential. Farming, it has to be said, has never been an easy business environment in which to operate.
Apart from the global competition for their food baskets the farmers have always been faced with a number of natural and environmental challenges. And now more than ever before when you take into account the seriousness of today’s global warming and climate change statistics. But for farmers with a love for nature, the future is not looking at all glum with such sustainable possibilities.
