Arunachal launches Organic Mission
ITANAGAR, Apr 16: Arunachal Pradesh took a major leap towards healthy and sustainable agriculture on Saturday with the launch of the State Organic Mission at the state Banquet Hall by Union Minister of State for Micro Small and Medium Enterprise, Giriraj Singh.
With this, the state hopes to shift to organic farming in a phased manner and promote Arunachal Pradesh as an organic state.
Terming Arunachal Pradesh as an agriculture heaven, Singh said that the people here have been abundantly blessed with all of natures resources, adding that organic farming will ensure that Arunachal Pradesh becomes a major agro-tourism destination. Asserting that it is pertinent to add value addition to agriculture and horticulture produces by changing the raw product into something new through different processes, he reiterated that Without value addition, it would be a meaningless venture.
