Subhash Palekar’s Zero Budget Natural Farming is a unique method of farming which requires absolutely no monetary investment for purchase of key inputs like seeds, fertilizers and plant protection chemicals from the market. The farmer can grow hardy local varieties of crops without application of fertilizers and pesticides. Since it is a zero budget farming no institutional credit would be required and dependence on hired labor is also reduced to bare minimum. All that the system requires is native breed of cattle which is any case forms an integral part of farming families in rural areas. It is claimed that one cow is sufficient to take up this method of farming on thirty acres of land.
