The concept of organic farming is to demonstrate the effectiveness of low cost agriculture- there by increasing the net earnings from successive crops and of course the tremendous nutritional and health accruing from this form of farming. A living soil is the basic of organic farming. A live healthy soil with proper cropping patterns, crop residue management and effective crop rotation can sustain optimum productivity over the years, without any loss in fertility. Organic farming envisages a comprehensive management approach to improve soil health, the ecosystem of the region & the quality of produce. A living soil can be maintained by continuous in corporation of crop & weed biomass, use of animal dung. urine based manures, compost (Fym, NADEP, vermicompost), biofertilizers, bioenhancers, special liquid formulations (vermiwash) etc. during a crop rotation. As a thumb rule, crop residues should be returned to the plot, directly or indirectly.
It was revealed that there is a considerable support from the farmers community & NGOs throughout the State. demanding more trainings for creating awareness of organic farming.

Agriculture Department & SAU’s are strongly advocating Package of Cultivation Practices based on chemicals which lead farmers to indebtedness. Keeping this view in mind.
