Organic Agriculture: Future for Small-Scale Farmers

When Zambia’s KATC began operating in 1974, its methods of farming were inspired by the Green Revolution which promoted new advances in agriculture, says Nkole

According to an article by Nkole Nkole, when Zambia’s Kasisi Agriculture Training Centre (KATC) began operating in 1974, its methods of farming were inspired by the Green Revolution which promoted new advances in agriculture as a way to end global hunger.
 
Nkole states that the initiatives, led by a man considered the ‘Father of the Green Revolution’ Norman Borlaug involved the creation of new chemical fertilisers and synthetic herbicides and pesticides.
 
He further explains that in the ‘90s, however, KATC shifted its approach from promoting conventional agriculture to sustainable organic agriculture (SOA) and since then, this is the system that the centre has embraced entirely.
