It has been observed that use of pesticides has been the main mode of control of pests and they are still in use on large scale as preventive and curative measures.
The excessive and indiscriminate use of chemical pesticides and chemical fertilizers has resulted in serious environmental pollution, destruction of natural enemies, and development of resistance to these chemicals and residue hazards etc. Therefore, the needs to phase out the use of these chemicals are now taking momentum. The research priorities in many developed countries have fundamental shift from chemical to non-chemical methods which are more ecologically sound and economically secure.
Keeping the above in view the Doctor's Krishi Evam Bagwani Vikas Sanstha, Lucknow envisage to bring out a bi-annual journal "Journal of Eco-friendly Agriculture" where in all latest research information on organic farming will be published from all over the country and abroad. The publication of original research pokers in this journal will provide opportunities to research workers to accelerate their work in this specialized on eco-friendly approaches.
Considering the above, there is a need of a different kind of agriculture and a different kind of technology to achieve our goal for effective green revolution. We have to phase out the unnecessary consumption of poisonous chemicals and chemical fertilizers, and actively consider our strategies on organic farming system. These strategies includes use of eco-friendly approaches viz., bio-pesticides, bio-agents, bio-fertilizers, IPM, IDM, INM and other allied eco-friendly components.
