Therefore, organic farming is neither merely replacing the chemicals with organic matter in it, nor is it going back to traditional agriculture.

Organic farming is essentially a soil-building mechanism to keep the soil 'alive', make the soil 'live' and sustain fertility. Building 'live' soil is the primary concern of all organic farming. In organic farming, soil - and not the crop - is fed. The soil has to hold the organic matter and create conditions for microorganisms to work on it to release nutrients. Therefore, organic farming is neither merely replacing the chemicals with organic matter in it, nor is it going back to traditional agriculture. It is the conversion of soil from 'non-living' to 'living'. To sustain life in the soil, several techniques are involved and once that is achieved, the soil will take care of itself with minimum maintenance cost and minimum external inputs. As the sesamum is valuable oilseed crop, it is necessary to decrease the usage of chemical fertilizers by well-established techniques of using balanced organic and inorganic sources of nutrients in an integrated way. The nutrients application in an integrated way maintains soil fertility and gives higher production in a sustainable manner. Green revolution technologies involving greater use of synthetic agrochemicals such as fertilizers and pesticide.
