Abstract:

Green Revolution has made to improve agricultural production and productivity. Along with that, it caused severe stress on soil fertility, decreased chemical efficiency, failure of overall crop yield. As a result of the above factors, the farmer becomes more miserable year by year and induced them to commit suicide. This paper attempts to bring together the present status of organic farming in the World and India. The greater extent of organic agricultural land is occupied by Australia (35.65 million hectares). Organic international estimates that 1.78 million hectares in India is under organic farming, i.e., 2.5% of the world organic area, and stood first with 835,000 organic producers at the global level. Addition of organic manure, Biofertilizer, and Vermicompost, provides a continuous supply of micronutrients and macronutrients to the crops, which is eco- friendly.
