USE OF LIGHT WEIGHT MACHINERIES IN ORGANIC FARMING

Use of light weight machineries like power weeder, mini tiller, power reaper reduces the impact of soil compaction and helps in organic farming a lot.

Soil compaction is also known as soil structure degradation, it is increase the bulk density and decrease in porosity of the soil.

Soil compaction leads to soil erosion and decrease fertility of the soil. Use of heavy machineries leads to compaction of subsoil which will not allow water and nutrient to pass through and ultimately affects the crop growth.

Use of light weight agriculture machineries like power weeders, mini tillers and power reapers reduces soil compaction which leads land to remain fertile by absorption and retention of water and nutrient which also helps to maintain biodiversity with in soil.
