Abstract:

India produces a massive variety of agricultural crops including cereals, oilseeds and pulses. The Green Revolution has been the keystone of India’s agricultural achievement to produce more food production. To increase productivity, blanket application of a huge capacity of chemical fertilizers is being followed keeping the health aspect at bay. Hence, an alternative technique of farming system is of urgent need which could assure the needs of increased food production with providing defense against several potential health issues. Organic farming has been confirmed as a key to both of these problems. In addition, since the need for the pre-requisites for organic agriculture is less as contrast to chemical farming, as a result, in a country like India where the agriculture is highly influenced by the vagaries of different biotic and abiotic factors, organic farming is competent adequate to give economic security to the small and marginal farmers as well. However, with the strategy plans implemented by the government of India to support organic farming about the initiation, implementation and the selling of organic food products as well as the growing demand of the organic products in the domestic as well as international market, there is abundant scope for organic food industries to increase and generate profits for strengthening the Indian economy.
