Another Wonder of Chemical Free Farming

Thu, 06/03/2010

Bangalore Ashram, India
After the Ashtavakra session, a farmer from a village of Uttar Pradesh, India, came up with another wonder of chemical free farming. He took chemical free seeds from the ‘Art of Living’ seed bank. Initially, he was little apprehensive in using natural seeds and switching to chemical free farming, without making use of urea. But, he was happy and satisfied with the results obtained: Chemical free natural seed has generated 58 grains per wheat spike as compared to only 28 grains per spike in case of using chemically treated seeds.

Under the seed bank project, farmers take free seeds from the Ashram, and return double the amount of seeds next year, which are then distributed to other farmers. 
 
Sri Sri later shared with everyone the harmful effects of using crops generated by chemical farming, which includes aches in different body parts and accumulation of toxins in the body. He continued to say that switching to chemical free farming is really important to keep the future generation disease free, and spreading awareness about this is also part of spirituality.
