ROLE OF ORGANIC FARMING IN INDIA: ISSUES AND PROSPECTS

  • Dr. Renu Tyagi, Mrs. Aparna

Abstract

All techniques and interventions in natural ecosystems have their own side effects. For half a century we have used pesticides and herbicides indiscriminately to increase crop production, but now we can see their harmful effects. The history of the Marwa region in Punjab (Ganbert) and the tragedy of Endosulfan in Kerala are typical examples. Now, we have achieved our next motto, self-sufficiency in edible grain production, and provide people with a healthy diet. We are looking for alternative nature-based chemical-free agriculture. It's organic farming. Also, as the demand for healthy, residue-free foods around the world and in the country itself is increasing day by day, it is possible to obtain the highest prices by exporting chemical-free agricultural products to developed countries. It will help. People are ready to pay an additional amount if they are guaranteed to buy properly grown food through the natural system. Therefore, it is necessary to strengthen the domestic certification process. Keywords: Traditional Agriculture, Crop- Production, Organic Farming, Domestic-Certification.
