Many opting for organic farming in TS

Wanaparthy: In recent years, rural Telangana has witnessed a spurt in organic farming, largely influenced by Subhash Palekar’s integrated farming approach.

NRIs, software employees, retired professionals and traditional farmers have been actively opting for organic farming. Praveen Kumar Reddy is one such person who left his software job in Bengaluru to return to his roots to become a full-time farmer, cultivating organic paddy, millets and fruits in his 15-acres-land at his native place, Pebbair.
