Abstract:

During green revolution intensive use of chemical in agriculture might have helped to achieve a dramatic increase in crop yield ensuring food security in India, but meanwhile, the intensive application of chemical fertilizers and pesticides led to gradual decline in soil health and environment, and food safety became a major concern. This has raised question regarding the sustainability of agriculture/horticulture in the long term, urging attention towards sustainable production practices. Accepting the harmful effect of the excessive use of chemical fertilizers on soil health and pesticides on human health, there is a need for an integrated management system. Organic farming can provide quality food without adversely affecting the soil’s health and the environment, thus may be one of the options for sustainability. Organic food is not only attractive but also associated to quality, healthy and natural products in opposition to the more processed and conventional food. The paper has been reviewed for organic fruit production with sustainable approach in horticulture in India.
