The first step to utilizing Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture is to begin farming organically—without the use of synthetic or harmful chemicals.

Anything damaging or toxic is avoided and instead farmers adopt systems that nourish the soil rather than depleting it, said international Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture expert Dr Peter Swan.

About 94% of the world's soil is degraded—40% seriously degraded, he said, speaking with Maharishi University of Management Dean of Faculty Dr Cathy Gorini on radio station KHOE's programme A Chat with the Dean.

As with his programmes in other areas—such as architecture and health careMaharishi Mahesh Yogi emphasized making use of the best of both modern and ancient Vedic knowledge.

There are methods that can transform the quality of the soil in less than a year, Dr Swan said.

Even beyond organic farming, recitation by Vedic Pandits is a profound gift of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture. Efforts are underway to make this element available by the end of this year, Dr Swan said.

Specific recitation supports each of the eight stages of plant growth—including seed, sprout, flower, and fruit—so that each stage is full and complete, ensuring maximally nourishing, healthy food, Dr Swan explained.
