AGRICULTURE

Globalminder embarks on agriculture that focuses on producing long-term crops and livestock while having minimal effects on the environment. Here we try to find a good balance between the need for food production and the preservation of the ecological system within the environment. In addition to producing food, there are several overall goals associated with sustainable agriculture, including conserving water, reducing the use of fertilizers and pesticides, and promoting biodiversity in crops grown and the ecosystem. Our sustainable agriculture practices also focuses on maintaining economic stability of farms and helping farmers improve their techniques and quality of life. The Sustainable Development Goal to “End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture” (SDG2) recognizes the inter linkages among supporting sustainable agriculture, empowering small farmers, promoting gender equality, ending rural poverty, ensuring healthy lifestyles, and tackling climate change.
