Uttarakhand organic farming policy: A law for and with the farmer

Uttarakhand has wisely declared several districts organic, which means the farmers must undertake only organic farming. The good news is, it isnt just any old government order. The farmers, it seems, agree with this order entirely. Just a few days ago, in a conversation with one of the women leaders of a farmers collective, I realized how much of a farmers initiative organic here is, despite their travails.
