We will need to understand that we are talking about the fertility of soil here.

In ancient times, earth and land is aptly symbolized with female. While mothers' womb has been the starting point of our life in this birth, the very beginning perhaps was from Soil. Out of soil fertility, we were born.

Today, when that fertility is being lost, it denotes a dark future. So, it's imperative to address it immediately.

When the soil is depleted and 'dry', how to rejuvenate it? What needs to be done to bring back the fertility?

Replacing chemical fertilizers with organic manures is not the solution. Soil doesn't need anything from outside. It just needs to be left alone to rejuvenate itself. So the question is 'how to do agriculture and produce agro products without depleting the fertility of the soil? While there are many approaches to achieve it, the fundamental aspect is - to relate with the soil; to observe and connect with it; to love and nurture it. Anything that's done remembering this fundamental aspect shall be termed as 'organic manure'
