Erode organic farmers set to take the sugarcane plunge

Going organic seems to be yielding rich dividends for the Erode Uyir Iyyarkai Vivasaigal Sangam (Erode Uyir Natural Farmers’ Society). So much so that its members are raring to go a step further and bring into their fold about 1,000 acres of land in Tamil Nadu for organic sugarcane cultivation.

The 64 members of the society have already undertaken organic farming on about 400 acres in the State.
