Organic Agriculture using Sack and Deck Farm Approach
Abstract, International Journal of Innovative Technology and Exploring Engineering (IJITEE), 2019
The present study aimed at analysis of a sustainable technique of framing, thus economizing the land area through management of space, and also increasing the farming output, improved management of water, and linkage of organic farming techniques aiming at sustainability. These technologies include Sackfarm and the Deckfarm systems. This involves the production of organic compost, biofertilizer, and organic pest and disease control system that are combined in order to solve the issues relating to crop nutrient thus increase the productivity. The use of plants residues in this study for the compost integration cleaned up the filth on the farm. This work investigated the possibility of organic farming with a drip irrigation system that improves water use efficiency of crop production without using any chemical fertilizers. The Sack and Deck farm aims at reducing the food related diseases, poverty and effective water management taking into account the fast disappearance of forest cover and increasing carbon emission.
