For centuries, traditional farming has relied on the mercy of the Gods. Farmers of the past have heavily depended on a good round of monsoon and think of it as the sole way to decide the fate of their crops for the season. Many believed that the size and growth of their yield depended on their individual luck. Though as time progressed, many have taken to farming practices where they take their future in their own hands and work with different irrigation methods and fertilizers to grow their crops. These farmers have realized that they cannot let their livelihood be completely dependent on weather patterns that get more and more unpredictable by the day.

In this day and age, there are still many who believe that their ultimate harvest size and quality is something that fate would decide for them. But why leave so much to the Gods when there are many ways that one can be in control of their final harvest size by making a few simple changes to their farming practices.

To begin with, the biggest drawback of traditional farming is the fertilizers used and their effects on the soil and water. When traditional chemical fertilizers are used, it has been scientifically proven that there is a decline in soil productivity, loss of soil organic matter and water holding capacity, significant decrease in good bacteria in the soil and excessive salinization of the soil and water bodies around the farm. But unfortunately for the soil, these chemical fertilizers have very visible results in the form of increased growth of the crop, and what is not visible are those harmful effects mentioned above. But that does not mean that they do not occur, because a phenomena like soil erosion and desertification happen over generations, and ultimately lead to lower yield quantity.

Therefore, a shift to organic farming is extremely important right now, to prevent the farming land from turning barren and reaching a point where nothing can grow there. Organic farming includes using organic fertilizers which are made of compost and release nutrients slowly. These fertilizers build up organic soil matter and work on returning the nutrients to the soil instead of leaching it. They also increase the capacity of soil over time and enables it to retain more water and reduce the leaching of nitrates into groundwater. Among many other benefits, the benefits that organic fertilizers have for the soil are the most important because soil is the home for every crop, and it is absolutely essential to ensure that the soil is healthy to result in a healthy harvest.

Then the question is, despite such drastic negative effects of the conventional fertilizers and significant benefits of the organic fertilizers, why are the conventional fertilizers so popular? Well, it is so because these conventional chemical fertilizers are readily available; gives instant results. But one should not forget the consequences like barrenness, low quality and quantity crops in longer run, which is actually faced by farmers today.
