DCA organic farming, addressing poverty on climate change.

The Earth is experiencing the warmest surface temperatures since modern climate measurements were implemented in 1880. This extreme global warming is the result of excessive concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Moreover, overwhelming scientific evidence has concluded that climate change has been caused by anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, and if these are not substantially reduced, the devastating effects that it will have for future centuries will be irreversible.

Billions of people, particularly those in developing counties, will face shortages of water and food and greater risks to health and life as a result of climate change”. Consequently, global action should be focused on providing developing countries, and especially their most disadvantageous poverty-stricken sections and minority groups, who are the most vulnerable social groups in them, the necessary resources to adapt to the new climatic conditions that will arise from climate change.

Vulnerabilities of these extremely poverty-stricken sections and minority groups in developing countries are aggravated by discrimination and social exclusion that prevent them from acquiring the necessary resources to cope with global warming on their own. Adaptation strategies that are implemented need to acknowledge the circumstances of these groups to the extent of their vulnerabilities to climate change.

The population at risk of increased water stress in Africa is projected to be between 75–250 million and 350–600 million people by the 2020s and 2050s, respectively”. It is projected furthermore that temperatures in Africa will rise faster than the global average during the 21st Century.

How can organic farming benefits the climate?
Sustainability over the long term. Many changes observed in the environment are long term, occurring slowly over time. Organic agriculture considers the medium- and long-term effect of agricultural interventions on the agro-ecosystem. It aims to produce food while establishing an ecological balance to prevent soil fertility or pest problems. Organic agriculture takes a proactive approach as opposed to treating problems after they emerge.

Air and climate change. Organic agriculture reduces non-renewable energy use by decreasing agro-chemical needs (these require high quantities of fossil fuel to be produced). Organic agriculture contributes to mitigating the greenhouse effect and global warming through its ability to sequester carbon in the soil.

Water. In many agriculture areas, pollution of groundwater courses with synthetic fertilizers and pesticides is a major problem. Enhancing soil structure, water infiltration and managed organic systems with better nutrient retentive abilities, greatly reduce the risk of groundwater pollution. In some areas where pollution is a real problem, conversion to organic agriculture is highly encouraged as a restorative measure.

Soil. Soil building practices such as crop rotations, inter-cropping, symbiotic associations, cover crops, organic fertilizers and minimum tillage are central to organic practices. These encourage soil fauna and flora, improving soil formation and structure and creating more stable systems. In turn, nutrient and energy cycling is increased and the retentive abilities of the soil for nutrients and water are enhanced, compensating for the non-use of mineral fertilizers. Such management techniques also play an important role in soil erosion control. The length of time that the soil is exposed to erosive forces is decreased, soil biodiversity is increased, and nutrient losses are reduced, helping to maintain and enhance soil productivity. Crop export of nutrients is usually compensated by farm-derived renewable resources but it is sometimes necessary to supplement organic soils with potassium, phosphate, calcium, magnesium and trace elements from external sources.

Our modern organic farming practices

1.) Land preparations = 1 to 3 months before planting (for highly acidic soil)
2.) Garden preparation = 1 to 3 weeks before planting
3.) Soil supplement = additive for humic and organic matter deficiency.

Important benefits of Nature’s GOLD:

1.) Food for the soil
2.) Enhances the soil for Organic improvement
3.) Conditioning & increases soil fertility
4.) Eliminates bad bacteria and fungi in the soil
5.) Add Organic matter to the soil
6.) Turning acidic soil into Organic soil
7.) High in active ingredients needed by the soil
8.) Improves structure of the soil and its holding capacity
9.) Increases garden productivity over time
9.) Others.

Why does soil need to be organic?
Organic matter is the key to improving soil quality which, in turn, leads to healthy, productive plants. It improves the structure of soils that are high in clay or sand so that roots can better grow and take advantage of available water, air, and nutrients.

The concept of making our Nature’s GOLD product

The concept “feed the soil and the soil will feed your plants” is very important for gardeners. If you feed your soil different types of organic matter on a regular basis you provide food for soil-dwelling organisms. The vast majority of these- bacteria and fungi- cannot be seen without a microscope. They break down organic materials, consume each other, and cause the release of nutrients that roots can pick up.

In the constant use of Nature’s GOLD

Your soil is improved with every addition of Nature’s GOLD, adding Nature’s GOLD is adding organic matter. You are building up a reservoir of slowly released nutrients that increase your garden’s productivity over time. You may also need to use Organic fertilizers to make sure that your plants have the nutrients they most need (e.g. nitrogen) when they need it. But your reliance on organic or synthetic fertilizers will probably decrease as your organic matter content increases.
