government support for organic conversion

As elections are one of the only times governments and oppositions take notice of public issues, do you think the potential of Natural Sequence Farming should become an issue.

Over the last years billions of dollars have gone into so called 'fixes' for our problems and now more billions are being poured down possibly another deep hole.

Do you think NSF should be given adequate funds to either prove or disprove it's theories?

Let us know your thoughts here.

government support for organic conversion

Postby matto » Fri Feb 05, 2010 11:51 am

If the government is sincerely looking into using soil as a carbon sink then it should, in turn, look to the obvious benefits of organic farming practises including holistic management, biodynamic and natural sequence farming.
Converting to organic farming results in losses of income through loss of production whilst land rehabilitates and detox's from chemical dependence.
This conversion process is being supported by governments in Wales, Scotland and Denmark.

Our government needs to start an action plan to convert a considerable portion of land to meet carbon reduction targets. And also funding to promote pathways in relocalisation of certified organic products
