Problems and Prospect of Organic Farming in Developing Countries

  • WB Bello

Abstract



Agricultural development strategy for developing countries need to be geared towards increasing the productivity of land under cultivation, with reduced cost, higher efficiency use of inputs with little or no harm to both human and the environment. The prime requisite is the promotion of a healthy soil-plant-environment system to reduce Land degradation and abuse of the inputs. A new strategy of promoting eco-friendly farming is through the modification of the present systems of farming in the area of soil nutrient restoration to encourage the use of organic materials, termed organic farming. This paper discusses the problems and prospects of adopting this system in developing countries.
