CBE Organic-Based Farm Practices

Bio-Intensive Gardening

Bio-intensive gardening is a modern form of organic gardening that focuses on rebuilding and maintaining soil fertility through nutrient cycling. It is a usable technique, which aims at diversified cropping and bed preparation on small plots of land with maximum yield. It involves harvesting a diverse range of crop varieties that are less susceptible to pest outbreaks. This process has financial gains, preserves indigenous seed varieties and has a good crop sales value.
