The unsustainability of modern agricultural practices has led farming communities, the World over to look for alternatives. The majority of these alternatives indicate a return to traditional, eco-friendly practices; organic farming is one among them. Organic farming over the last few decades has proved to be successful; but the differences in culture, ecology and geographical factors necessitate adoption of situation-specific principles and techniques in agriculture. A large sum of Kerala farmers are in the path of experimenting innovations in this field, some have succeeded, others are in the process of evolution and new options are being testing out in organic farming. One of the main arguments against organic farming is that it would not meet the food requirements of an ever-increasing population. But a brief look at the era of modern agriculture would show that, in spite of the booming agricultural production, more people die of starvation and malnutrition than before. Inequitable distribution of food rather than insufficient production is the root cause of the problem.
