India witnessed self-sufficiency in food production due to the grand success of Green revolution introduced in 1960’s. Ignoring the fact that the revolution will do nothing but rob off all the wealth of the soil, India marched off making new innovations in the agricultural sector. By the advent of the 20th century, the soil health was completely lost due to the rampant use of the agrochemicals. Instead of undertaking a new anthropogenic venture to deal with the problem, it was suggested that the farmers should go back to the arms of the nature and take up organic farming to restore the loss. While few farmers readily took up this suggestion, some of them showed a great deal of reluctance as the problems of productivity, costs and profits overshadowed their decisions. The Indian government is actively participating to promote organic agriculture. Recent statistics point India to be amongst the top 10 countries, having maximum land under organic cultivation. The organic market in India looks quite promising but it needs an additional backup from the Indian government to combat the reluctance of Indian farmers towards organic farming.
