organic-farming-itsorganic-1

Sustainable agriculture and farming is the need of the day. With rise in population and the ever increasing need for healthy and nutritious food, Organic farming is the way to go ahead. The so called ‘Green Revolution’ has destroyed everything natural in it’s effort to increase food production! This so called revolution has only increased costs and all negative aspects with it, not to mention low income. With awareness we have come to understand that a natural balance needs to be maintained at all cost for existence of life and property. Organic farming in India is now spreading like wildfire. More youth and farmers are trying to bring about a change for the better. In this website we try to highlight all the organic activities taking place in India. This will be source of information for all people interested to do organic farming and to buy or sell organic products. Lets join hands for a healthy future.

Organic farming system in India is not new and is being followed from ancient times. It is a method of farming system which primarily aimed at cultivating the land and raising crops in such a way, as to keep the soil alive and in good health by use of organic wastes (crop, animal and farm wastes, aquatic wastes) and other biological materials along with beneficial microbes (biofertilizers) to release nutrients to crops for increased sustainable production in an eco friendly pollution free environment.

The role of organic agriculture, whether in farming, processing, distribution, or consumption, is to sustain and enhance the health of ecosystems and organisms from the smallest in the soil to human beings. In particular, organic agriculture is intended to produce high quality, nutritious food that contributes to preventive health care and well-being. In view of this it should avoid the use of fertilizers, pesticides, animal drugs and food additives that may have adverse health effects.
