Method of Preparation of Various Inputs Used in Natural Farming

Hridesh Harsha Sarma and Saurav Kumar Dutta

Natural farming emphasizes harmonizing with nature rather than opposing it. It promotes the use of natural predators, compost, animal dung, and locally available organic resources to enhance soil fertility, manage pests, and boost crop yields. The approach has gained global traction due to its environmental and socio-economic benefits. Components of natural farming are Beejamrit, jivamrit, Whapasa, Acchadana and plant protection. Neemastra, Agniastra, Brahmastra, Dashaparni ark and natural fungicides are used as plant protection measures. Preparation of these inputs is very crucial for proper growth and development of crops grown under this technique. Natural farming minimizes soil and water pollution, preserves biodiversity, and mitigates climate change impacts by reducing reliance on chemical pesticides and fertilizers. Countries like India have increasingly recognized and supported natural farming practices. Despite its benefits, challenges such as limited farmer awareness, inadequate access to organic inputs, and the need for supportive policies and infrastructure remain hurdles to widespread adoption.

Role of Insects as a Potential Source of Nutrients in Human Diet

Hridesh Harsha Sarma and Siranjib Sonowal

Insects have emerged as a promising source of nutrition for humans, offering a sustainable and nutrient-rich alternative to traditional protein sources. Rich in protein, healthy fats, vitamins (such as B vitamins), minerals (like iron and zinc), and dietary fiber, they provide a well-rounded nutritional profile. Beyond their nutritional benefits, insects require significantly fewer resources?land, water, and feed?compared to conventional livestock, making them environmentally sustainable. Consuming insects has been a longstanding human practice, yet remains stigmatized or taboo in certain cultures. Compared to conventional livestock, insect farming requires minimal land, water, and feed inputs, thereby reducing environmental footprint. Their cultivation emits significantly fewer greenhouse gases and contributes less to deforestation, aligning with sustainability goals. This efficiency makes insects particularly attractive in regions where agricultural resources are limited or climate challenges threaten food security.

Pink Oyster Mushroom (Pleurotus djamor): Introduction and General Farming Practices

Vijay Kumar and Ashok Chhetri

Pleurotus djamor known as "Pink Oyster Mushroom" as the colour of the fruiting bodies are pink. This is a unique Pleurotus mushroom species among all the members of the Pleurotus species. They are nutritionally very rich composed of high quality of protein, high fibre, low fat, vitamin and essential minerals. These mushrooms have very unique taste that this can be considered as a good alternative to meat or non veg. P. djamor can be grown on a wide range of agro-wastes like wheat straw, soyabean, coffee husk, rice husk and paddy straw etc. But the best results only be available on the substrate which are having higher content of lignocelluloses. In India its cultivation can be popularized by working on its cultivation technology refinement, substrate availability and create awareness among the people regarding the health benefits of P. djamor. The cultivation of P. djamor is still following the same cultivation process as followed in the other species of oyster mushroom.
