Belgaum LEADer Introduces Organic Pesticides to 1,000 Farmers

Posted on Saturday, February 15, 2014 by LEAD

Farmers across the country rely on inorganically prepared pesticides that are rich in toxic chemicals.  While most farmers opt for these inorganic pesticides because of their convenience, many do so due to lack of knowledge of the risks posed by chemical pesticides.  Chemical pesticides may protect our crops, but the environmental and health problems that they cause outlive the pest problems that they attempt to solve.  Santosh Patil from Jain College of Engineering, Belgaum, set out to resolve this issue with farmers of his locality.   He created awareness about the dangers of inorganic pesticides and introduced organic pesticides to local farmers.  His project has so far benefited more than 1000 farmers so far, and its impact is sure to continue throughout the generations. 

This project was selected to be showcased at Yuva Summit 2014.
