Natural substitute for fertilisers
Koraput: Tribal farmers of teh district reap the benefits of organic farming. They do not use fertilisers nor pesticides and still get a good yield due to adoption of organic farming.
"We never use fertilisers and pesticides available in the market as they are costly and beyond our affordability. Hence, we are using organic manure prepared at home which is a perfect substitute for fertiliser and pesticide," said Hari Miniaka of Koijhankar village in Laxmipur block of the district.
