Polyhouse / Greenhouse Technology provides crops with a controlled and favorable environment to grow, cultivate & harvest in all seasons. Moreover, the technology saves crops from cold in winter, heat in summer and rain in monsoon. In India, this technology is mainly used to cool off the environment, as the normal temperature is high here.
Greenhouse can be used for:
Producing half hardy perennials or bedding annually grown from seed both during sowing and pricking out.
Protect tender plants and bulbs during the winter months.
Grow hobby plants such as chrysanthemums, fuschia's or exotic orchids.
Cultivate indoor pot plants.
Cultivate alpine species.
Used for commercial purpose
Trellis / Pandal
Pandal type of cultivation is where poles are placed in the field at a distance of 4x4 and monofilament wires are tied between them at a height of 7 ft such that it forms as a wired roof. Then seeds of climber vegetables like the guard varieties such as bottle guard, rich guard, bitter guard are sown such that the plants use these wires to grow.
Once the plant is grown, the flowering happens and the vegetables grow such that it hangs from the roof. This way more vegetables are grown without any wastages that happen due to its touching of the ground.
Pandal type cultivation has been used since many centuries for grape vineyards, now they are also used for growing vegetables due to increase in yield.
Open-field system, basic community organization of cultivation in European agriculture for 2,000 years or more. Its best-known medieval form consisted of three elements: individual peasant holdings in the form of strips scattered among the different fields; crop rotation; and common grazing. Crop rotation was by the two-field system in the earlier age and by the three-field system in the later centuries; in either case some of the commonly held fields were always fallow and used for common grazing.
The system was especially well adapted to the feudal manorial social system, in which the lord’s holdings were intermixed and cultivated with those of the peasants. As society grew more complex and a market economy began to appear, the open-field system tended to give way to individual farming, permitting progressive peasants to farm as they pleased without having to conform to the old restrictive pattern.
Growing trees and shrubs in the fields where you grow your crops, and around the edges and borders of cropland, is called agroforestry.
In the past, trees would have been cut down to make space for crops and pastureland. This has had a hugely detrimental effect on the environment, causing soil erosion, loss of wildlife, and increased carbon dioxide levels, leading to climate change. Agroforestry is part of caring for creation, and copying what we see in creation. There are nearly always trees in nature and they are a very important part of the natural landscape.
Agroforestry emphasises the integration of trees with the rest of the farming activities. Trees can benefit both plant and animal production. Trees can also generate extra revenue for you as farmers.
In this method, we use other medium to grow vegetables or flowers. Mostly when the existing soil is not cultivatable, we use soil less cultivation using Cocopeat as a medium in growbags.
Other ways of doing soil less cultivation is through hydrophonics, Aquaphonics and Aerophonics.
Hydrophonics - Method to grow plants using only water and desolving bio fertlisers in water. In this method, water usage is reduced when compared to soil cultivation and yield also increases.
Aquaphonics - Similar to hydrophonics, but the water input is from a tank where fishes are also grown. Hence the nutrition from fish waste is utilised to grow plants.
Aerophonics - Here, water is broken down 80 microns thus creating a mist in the root level. Roots take only what is required and the rest of water is again collected back in tank. Water usage is very low in this method.
Organic farming system in India is not new and is being followed from ancient time. It is a method of farming system which primarily aimed at cultivating the land and raising crops in such a way, as to keep the soil alive and in good health by use of organic wastes (crop, animal and farm wastes, aquatic wastes) and other biological materials along with beneficial microbes (biofertilizers) to release nutrients to crops for increased sustainable production in an eco friendly pollution free environment.
As per the definition of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) study team on organic farming “organic farming is a system which avoids or largely excludes the use of synthetic inputs (such as fertilizers, pesticides, hormones, feed additives etc) and to the maximum extent feasible rely upon crop rotations, crop residues, animal manures, off-farm organic waste, mineral grade rock additives and biological system of nutrient mobilization and plant protection”.
Organic agriculture is a unique production management system which promotes and enhances agro-ecosystem health, including biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity, and this is accomplished by using on-farm agronomic, biological and mechanical methods in exclusion of all synthetic off-farm inputs.
