Sustainable Organic Culture

1. More than enough proofs have been shown that pesticides and synthetic farm inputs have not been as effective in increasing production but have, on the other hand, even contributed to the deterioration of the fertility of farmlands. It is imperative that the government cuts all subsidies for the manufacture and sale of synthetic chemicals.

The Government must encourage the production and use of organic fertilizers by giving subsidies which used to be earmarked for synthetic farm inputs. Certainly, a paradigm shift in agricultural policies is urgent if we are to make
agriculture in our country a primary and lucrative artery of the national economy.
