But the organic movement in the backdrop of the global agriculture is insignificant despite considerable effort during last few years.
Indian agriculture sector accounts for 17% of India’s gross domestic product and engages 50% of the country’s workforce. The current government has sought to launch the next green revolution with a renewed focus on rural economy and agriculture with an allocation of INR 14.34 trillion in Union Budget 2018.
With an upgrade for agricultural markets, linking of habitations with rural markets, support to the cultivation of medicinal and aromatic plants, new funds for fisheries and animal husbandry and a boost to food processing and agrilogistics through Operation Green, new Bamboo Mission and Kisan Credit cards, agronomy of India is expected to reach new heights.

Various recent studies investigating the health value of organic foods revealed lower nitrate contents and less pesticides residues and higher levels of vitamin C and phenolic compounds in organic plant products, as well as higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acid in milk from organically raised animals. Animal studies carried out so far have demonstrated positive effects of an organic diet on weight, growth, fertility indices and immune system. Recent human epidemiological studies associated consumption of organic foods with lower risks of allergies whereas findings of human intervention studies were still ambiguous.
