As it happened with other aspects of ancient Indian wisdom and heritage, India’s Vedic Krishi was also subdued by western chemical-based farming practices that were an offshoot of the industrial revolution post the second world war. The infrastructure of chemical factories established for world war 2 for making bombs and gun powder had no work after the end of war. To utilize these establishments, western countries converted them into chemical fertiliser industries and strategically marketed chemical farming to rest of the world. In less than 3 decades, the ill-effects of chemical farming were visibly clear with degradation in soil quality, increased usage of pesticides and most importantly, deterioration in the nutrient values of the yield. This impacted the food chain adversely, with impacts on our health and fatalities like cancer spreading rampantly. When this came to knowledge, again the western country scientists brought a methodology of farming using Organic inputs and termed it as ‘Organic Farming’. Here also they missed one step as they propagated it with monoculture farming practices. As Organic Farming became popular, it solved only one side of the problem – making the agricultural produce chemical free with better nutritional values as compared to Chemical Farming. On the flip side, Organic Farming increased the base input costs, thereby burdening the farmers with more responsibilities. The aggregate produce was not commensurate with the cost and efforts involved. Pest control was another less attended issue that hit the farmer hard. All this made farming difficult and unviable.
