# A Rule - Poem by Samanyan Lakshminarayanan

a new rule
on agriculture

'only a qualified person
should advocate on fertilizers to be used in
any cultivation'

a handed down
knowledge or lesson
on cultivation is an illegal one

the toiler
would know his land better
his experience with it...nay to his litter
he needs to throw it into the gutter

    knowledge grows on a daily basis, and the planter of the seed
    knows it even better.

    I love to grow things, to me it is still like magic sent to watch a plant grow to provide me with food and pleasure. I feel the soil it grows in from this I know if it needs more nourishment. Your Rule is good. Bob (Report) Reply

    Many ills of today like cancer come from the liberal use of chemical fertilizers, which get mixed up with the food grown that we eat daily for our survival. After some years, the soils also get highly polluted with strong chemicals and cannot be reused for agriculture. Therefore, to what extent such chemicals can be used, only an expert on chemicals can say. A farmer can be given full freedom in the use of natural fertilizers like cowdung, decomposed fodders etc. This is my opinion, if I am correct. (Report) Reply

    It looks natural farming is better than such fertised growth of crops and there are many things happening afterwards...! (Report) Reply
