Nature Farming is a holistic method in which farmers are discouraged to buy market based inputs like chemical fertilizers, chemical pesticides etc. for growing plants within zero budget and encouraged to grow healthy soil with friendly earthworms and thereby grow healthy plants.
I practice methodology which involves locally obtainable natural bio-degradable materials and combine scientific knowledge of ecology and modern technology with traditional farming practices based on naturally occurring biological processes which are promoted by agri-scientists like Subhash Palekar.
The principal methods of Nature Farming include crop rotation, green manures and compost, biological pest control, and mechanical cultivation. These measures use the natural environment to enhance agricultural productivity: legumes are planted to fix nitrogen into the soil, natural insect predators are encouraged, crops are rotated to confuse pests and renew soil, and natural materials such as potassium bicarbonate and mulches are used to control disease and weeds. Natural farmers are careful in their selection of plant breeds, and organic researchers produce hardier plants through plant breeding rather than genetic engineering. I practice farming by understanding the relationships between organisms and their environment.
I concentrate my efforts towards fulfilling these major objectives: Practicing natural farming, Sharing this knowledge with farmers and the general public and delivering the naturally grown food to people. By following these objectives I want to save soil health, environmental health as well as the health of people around me
I am a strong follower of Sri. Subhash Palekar guruji who has done a lot of research in zero based budgeting farming. He has written many books on Zero based budgeting farming. He is the generator and creator of zero based farming.
Under his guidence I practise Zero Budget Natural Farming and won't use any chemical pesticides to cultivate. He conducted many workshops all over India.
Testimonal from Subhash Palekarji: Congratulations Sri. Jagadish garu, you are giving the courage for farmers to adopt to Natural farming through social media !!!
Food is primary requisite to survive and approximate 80% of the food comes from farming so we should understand the relation between Food and Agriculture. To enhance the nutritive value of the food we have to focus on the quality and health enhancement of the soil, only then it would be possible to grow nutritious food for human and other species surviving on the earth.
I just want to say Mr Jagdish Reddy could understand this truth that healthy soil can produce healthy food which is good for everyone.
Jagadeesh is a farmer with passion for Agriculture. He does agriculture not just as profession but as performing a sacred ritual with equal veneration and respect for agriculture. I have been using the rice, cold pressed ground nut oil, coconut oil and jaggery since past one year and feeling confident about the healthy products.
Gandhi said 'see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil! I add to it 'eat no evil'.
I recommend Natural Life Style to lead a happy and healthy life. I recommend people to buy naturally grown food from Jagdeesh. I pray the Almighty to bestow him more energy and more creativity so that he can give healthy lives to as many people as possible.

Groundnut oil that is extracted using traditional cold pressed methods is highly nutritious and healthy with all the health benefits intact.
