We Need an Organic Agriculture Revolution in India
Odisha, April 11: With pollution, climate change and unsustainable practices, the earth is increasingly becoming a hostile place. A huge disaster is looming around. Unless otherwise checked, the whole planet would become uninhabitable within a very short period of time. This brings our attention to our very survival and the food we produce and consume and the way we do it.
Due to increasing awareness people have become more health conscious. We are increasingly more keen for consuming chemical free agricultural produce and ready to pay premium for these products. In developed countries, there are dedicated shelves for organic products in retail chains, which is very slowly gaining ground in India. Though the demand is rising in India we have huge demand and supply gap for organic products.
