Organic Farming Gets Good Patronage in Pondy Villages
29th May 2014
Debjani Dutta Organic farming is gradually taking root in Puducherry with locally grown products from the villages of PS Palayam, Abisekhagam, Mangalam, Vinayagampet, Kariamanickam, Bahour, Irularsandhai and Thiruvandarkoil coming into the market. Organic farmers jointly opened a stall on Wednesday in Uzhavar Sandhai, near the old bus stand, the space provided by the Department of Agriculture to market their produce. However, certification still eludes the farmers as there is no institution that certifies the produce unlike in Tamil Nadu.
