Abstract

This article, explores the burgeoning trend of organic farming in India as a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to conventional agricultural practices. The article delves into the historical roots of organic farming, its contemporary relevance, and the pivotal role played by key figures such as Sir Albert Howard and Rudolf Steiner. It sheds light on the various government initiatives supporting organic farming, emphasizing schemes like Paramparagat Krishi Vikas Yojana (PKVY), Mission Organic Value Chain Development for Northeastern Region (MOVCDNER), and others.
The discussion extends to the critical aspects of soil health and crop management, underscoring the adverse effects of synthetic farm inputs and the benefits of organic alternatives. The utilization of biofertilizers and organic manure, along with their impact on soil structure and microbial diversity, is elucidated. The economic viability of organic farming is explored, emphasizing the higher market value of organic products and the potential for export opportunities in the global market.
Challenges faced by farmers transitioning to organic methods are addressed, accompanied by proposed solutions, ranging from awareness campaigns and financial support for certifications to the establishment of decentralized production systems. The article concludes by advocating for a balanced approach to organic farming, recognizing the need for sustained government support, collaboration, and a gradual transition to ensure the long-term sustainability of Indian agriculture.
