Organic – B&B Mangoes Agriculture was practiced for thousands of years without the use of artificial chemicals. Due to rise in demand for food products and time limitations, individuals were pulled towards such forms of agriculture leading to severe long term side effects such as soil compaction, soil erosion, and declines in overall soil fertility, along with health concerns about toxic chemicals entering food chain.
At B&B we stick to biodynamic agriculture where in we rely on fertilizers of organic origin such as compost manure, green manure and various other techniques such as soil rotation, companion planting etc. The growing domestic and export market demands for organically grown fruits and vegetables compel us to learn and grow ORGANIC MANGOES using the Natural Farming System. This is a simple and basic study to help mango growers produce naturally grown mango free from toxic chemical residue, using both herbal organic fertilizers and concentrates with biotechnology and integrated pest management.
