Jadam is a group of organic farmers

Jadam is a group of organic farmers that was established in 1991 by Youngsang Cho. Jadam’s activities are based on its website www.jadam.kr and has nearly 60,000 members as of March 2016.

The objective of Jadam is to bring farming back to the farmers; to restore the farmers’ sovereignty in technology; spread an ultra-low cost method of farming; and ultimately open a new world where farmers, consumers and mother nature are in harmony.

High cost and difficult method of organic farming cannot spread far and wide; it will only cause more trouble for farmers and agriculture.

Jadam came up with a unique solution of “ultra-low cost” method of farming as an answer to the future of agriculture. Based on the technical aims of SESE (Simple, Easy, Scientific, Effective), Jadam established a complete system of farming after decades of trials.

As agro-corporations gain more control over the knowledge and technology of farming, farming becomes more and more expensive. This is a common problem faced by the farmers of the world as a whole. This is the reason why agriculture is collapsing everywhere. Jadam’s ultra-low cost farming method will liberate agriculture from the corporations and bring hope for the farmers.

Jadam’s system has a do-it-yourself making of natural pesticides. These are organic and environment-friendly yet are no less effective than commercial ones. This allows you to go organic and low-cost at the same time. Conventional farmers too benefit from the use of our inputs because it saves them huge costs.

Jadam has not patented any of its knowledge but shared it all through seminars, books, and website. The making of Jadam’s two great inventions – Jadam sulfur and Jadam wetting agent – are also disclosed in the website www.jadam.kr

Jadam will continue its work to further develop and refine its system.

Jadam Organic Farming

Youngsang Cho,

President of Jadam was born in Hwaseong, Korea in 1965. He graduated Suweon High School and studied chemistry in Aju University. He got his Master's in horticulture from Chungnam National University.

He served in the special forces unit 706 and upon completion of military service, went to Asan to start farming. He established Jadam (meaning "People that resemble nature") in 1991, and opened website www.jadam.kr

He established "Natural Pesticide Institute" to do research on environment-friendly method of pest maangement. Having also gathered knowledge from many organic farmers on the fields, he founded the system of Ultra-Low Cost (ULC) Agriculture.

He wrote "Jadam Organic Farming: the Way to Ultra-Low Cost Agriculture." This book is a masterpiece that well collects and organizes the knowledge of Jadam method.

Below are some of Mr. Cho's inventions/innovations. It is his principle to "open and share" all knowledge instead of patenting them. This is to fight against knowledge being owned by the corporations.

- Natural wetting agent (no heating)
- Natural sulfur (no heating)
- Natural microorganism solution made with potatoes
- Natural microorganism solution made with mixed grains
- Natural liquid fertilizer made without sugar or molasses
- Natural pesticide against rice bakanae disease
- Natural pesticide against canker, leaf spot
- Natural pesticide against powdery mildew, downy mildew
- Natural pesticide against aphids, mites
- Natural pesticide against tobacco moth, beet armyworm
- Natural pesticide against stinkbug, mealybug
- Natural pesticide against slug, snail
- Natural pesticide against citrus flatid planthopper, leafhopper
- Natural pesticide against rice water weevil (surface spreading agent)
- Comprehensive pesticide for rice
- Eliminating flies from livestock housings
- Complete fertilizer program for crops
- Naphthalene pesticide
