Why we do Organic Farming ?

Generally it is a conception that Organic Farming is done because all those produce that is made by this farming is free from any chemicals like pesticide, insecticides, herbicides, etc. And this when we use this product in our formulations (if we talk about essential oils that we farm and produce) then we are protecting our body ? Some or the other way this might be correct but did we ever thought why we actually are doing organic farming? Here is the brief

KYOTO PROTOCOL

Kyoto Protocol is an international treaty which extends the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) that commits state parties to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, based on the scientific consensus that global warming is occurring and it is extremely likely that human-made CO2 emissions have predominantly caused it. The Kyoto Protocol was adopted in Kyoto, Japan, on 11 December 1997 and entered into force on 16 February 2005. The Kyoto Protocol implemented the objective of the UNFCCC to reduce the onset of global warming by reducing greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere to "a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system". The Kyoto Protocol applies to the six greenhouse gases: Carbon dioxide (CO2), Methane (CH4), Nitrous oxide (N2O), Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), Perfluorocarbons (PFCs), and Sulphur hexafluoride (SF6).

RELATION BETWEEN ORGANIC FARMING & KYOTO PROTOCOL

When we implement organic farming , this means that we are converting our lands to any hazardous chemical free usage. In conventional farming, there has been extensive usage of chemicals like pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, etc. These when used in excess in farming practices emits greenhouse gases in atmosphere and also makes our soil less fertile. These greenhouse gases are then responsible for climatic changes as described in kyoto protocol.

MISSION OF AROMATIC & ALLIED CHEMICALS

Our company has taken an initiative since the year 2006 to spread practice of Organic Farming in different parts of India. In order to get right to their aim, they have developed method of producing Organic Compost (using cow dung) and Organic Insecticides (using cow urine) which acts as a natural source of growing and protecting crops, thus preventing emission of any greenhouse gases and helping to make soil more powerful and fertile for all crops.


Since Aromatic and Allied has always been a pioneer of manufacturing essential oils, they have collaborated with CSIR CIMAP for spreading this technology of farming in the field of aromatic crops. Now they are going to different places in India where the soils are tested and is then been supported with providing of Organic Compost, Aromatic crops like Lemongrass, Citronella, Geranium, Vetiver, Peppermint, Mentha arvensis, Spearmint, etc.

CONCLUSION

In order to protect our mother earth, we need to promote use of more natural and organic products not only to save our body but also to protect any climatic changes. We at Aromatic and Allied Chemicals, are committed to our aim and will follow the guidelines in order to achieve the same.
