NATIONAL LEVEL FARMERS MEET ON COMMERCIAL CULTIVATION OF MEDICINAL PLANTS AND ORGANIC FARMING
The agricultural sector contributes a major portion of the gross production of India. In spite of this, agriculture today is finding itself in increasing difficulties. The adverse impact of agriculture based on the increasing cost of cultivation, less output in traditional crop cultivation, synthetic fertilizers, and herbicides is visible in the degradation of soil fertility, quality of food and taste of food, etc.
Organic farming of medicinal crops may prove to be a boon to curbing these adverse results. It is identified as an important part of sustainable agriculture. However, there is a dearth of awareness of the commercial cultivation of medicinal crops and organic farming in India. It has been assumed that farmers are not aware of the importance of this new option to increase farmers income.
Organic Farmer Producer Association of India- OFPAI in association with the International Institute of Advanced Agriculture Skill Development- IIAASD as usual came up with this farmer meet as a treat for the farmers of India. We invocate the farmer community to join this 2 days event.
