Abstract:

In this review article, we describe various underlying principles and techniques behind breeding crops for organic agriculture. As we know, according to standards of organic agriculture, genetic engineering or its use in any which way is restricted. Basically organic agriculture is based on the underlying principles of health, farmers, ecology and care. The norms that derive organic agriculture are product oriented. Most of the varieties used for organic agriculture are derived from conventional plant breeding which are input responsive. Thus, there is a need to breed varieties especially for organic agriculture to unlock its full potential.
