Farming makes a comeback in India, as growers return to traditional, organic practices

Thousands of farmers throughout India are reverting to traditional farming methods, as the consequences of Western agriculture have begun to negatively impact the region’s food and water supply, as well as the health of its people.

More than 40 years after the “Green Revolution,” a period in which India’s agriculture yields skyrocketed following the introduction of commercial agriculture techniques, farmers are returning to traditional, organic methods that date back centuries.

In a last ditch attempt to save the country’s resources and the health of its people, India has emerged as a global leader in organic farming, welcoming 600,000 certified producers.
