									Sustainable Agriculture Courses: Increasing Food

Sustainable agriculture is a way of life. It involves a natural balance and sees to it that everything is
carried out smoothly. The systematic approach to sustainable agriculture is done by growing food
that is healthy for humans and livestock, gives regard to animal welfare, does not pose any threat or
harm to the environment, grants a favourable working environment to farmers and proper
compensation for work that is rendered, and provides a steady source of food and livelihood to

Studying sustainable agriculture courses will teach you how to handle things in a natural way.
Conservation and preservation of land and natural resources such as soil, water and air are
replenished back so that it can be reused by the people in the future. Chemicals in pesticides and
fertilizers are not to be used so that it wouldn’t seep down to the underground water tables and
pollute the water sources. This is also true in maintaining air safe from pesticide drifting.

Soil management include proper manure disposal, maintaining soil cover by growing more plants
and maintain the diversity of soil microorganism and nitrogen content by using cover crops or green
manure crops like beans. Different crops and farm animals are raised and alternated around the field
to keep the soil nourished and ready for the next crops. Animals are allowed to graze which permits
natural movement and behaviour. Farmers and other farm workers, on the other hand, are treated
well and enjoy the bounty of the crops, fair wages and safe working environment. This is where
sustainable agriculture complements organic agriculture courses.

Proper maintenance of the farm using natural processes are explained thoroughly when you take
agricultural correspondence courses. Check out the courses offered by the Open Institution near you
and decide which agriculture courses you should take.
