PATNA: The central government is planning to turn India’s eastern states into an organic farming-hub, Union agriculture minister Radha Mohan Singh said here on Monday.

“Our priority is to develop Bihar, Odisha, West Bengal and eastern Uttar Pradesh into an organic farming hub for development of the region and to provide opportunity to millions of farmers to earn more,” Singh told media persons.

Singh, who hails from Bihar, said organic farming has more scope and potential to change the face of the eastern states.
