Conventional farming techniques have increased the yield over the past few decades, but those techniques also have adverse effects on natural resources. In this scenario, many other alternatives have emerged as a solution, natural farming being one among them. The presented article delivers crucial information regarding the targeted farming technique i.e., natural farming. Multiple scientifically-proven natural techniques and ecological approaches are discussed for different aspects of farming. In addition, criticisms related to Natural Farming are illustrated along with a basic introduction to zero budget natural farming (ZBNF). Furthermore, the article describes multiple proven technologies for weed, pest and disease management approaches through natural practices. Lastly, the article gives recommendations on implementing and introducing natural farming to the farming community.</p> RS Bana Rakesh Dawar SM Haldhar Samarth Godara Arjun Singh SD Bamboriya Vipin Kumar AK Mishra Manoj Choudhary Copyright (c) 2022 2022-09-25 2022-09-25 14 1 11 10.53911/JAE.2022.14201
