One of the most important aspects of the Organic farming that we practice at our farms is the usage of Desi Indigenous seeds - in our understanding, these native breeds have a direct impact on Soil health as they do not deplete the soil of its nutrients.
They are innately well accustomed to local climate change, they have an inherent adapting power to climatic stress and can sustain drought conditions, require very little or no forced management and are naturally resistant to diseases and pests. Besides they yield produce which is naturally higher in nutritive value, taste and other attributes as compared to the Hybrid varieties.
TBOF presents a curated account of how crusaders from around the country are pioneering this movement for the conservation of Native, Indigenous seeds - although slow and cautious; a fiercely steady renaissance is on her way.
