SEARCA PROC 2020 4: Proceedings of the Forum on Organic and Inorganic Farming

Organic farming and inorganic farming have been on the opposite ends of a polarizing issue in agriculture for many years. Owing to the many challenges facing the agriculture sector today, including the growing population, food insecurity, and climate change, there is a need to find ways to make these two practices work together. Thus, the Coalition for Agriculture Modernization in the Philippines, Inc. (CAMP), advises a win-win strategy that integrates both organic and inorganic practices, depending on farmersí ability and situation. This integration will assure complementarity while benefiting from the two systems, with soil organic matter enhancing the efficiency of nutrient use from chemical fertilizers. With the integration of good farming practices, CAMP believes that there is a greater chance to improve and sustain soil productivity and high yields in order to meet the needs of our ever increasing population, and provide for a cleaner environment.
