India has a huge potential for consumption of organic products and attempts should be made by progressive farmers to promote it, said NITI Ayog chief executive officer Amitabh Kant on Wednesday.

Some should become great organic farmers. India need couple of success stories. If farmers get better unit realisation value, many will emulate it.

As per the study conducted by the International Competence Centre for Organic Agriculture in eight cities in India, there is huge market for organic food. There are opportunities for organic farming business.
