The overall concept is that particular ideas-techniques can be easily adapted to certain areas . This depends upon factors like : land condition ( high , medium , low ) ; soil condition ( example salinity ) ; presence of water in soil (how fast the land dries after the rainy season) ; large scale availability of raw materials for composting ; existing crops and crop cycles ; presence or absence of certain trees ; lands adjacent to houses ( for integrated farming ) etc.
