Agriculture & farming

When the British introduced formal education in India, more than a century ago, they emphasized that "the scientific" agriculture originated only in the West and the Indian farming systems have always been "unscientific". It is unfortunate that the course curriculum in agriculture till today reflects the Western bias. It is only during the past three decades, the West itself has recognized that many of the present "scientific" practices led to unsustainable agriculture, and only then did Indian scientific study the traditional/indigenous farming systems.
