The indiscriminate use of chemicals in crop production has deteriorated the soil health and
polluted earth’s environment. To reverse the situation, there is need to switch over to organic
farming. The present study was conducted in Sriganganagar district on a sample comprising 50
organic farmers. It was found that organic farmers were middle aged, possessing 4-10 ha, of land
and show positive attitude towards organic farming. Organic producers have medium level of
knowledge about practices of organic cultivation. Most of the farmers were taken Raj.1482 wheat
variety for organic production. The study revealed that organic farmers received higher returns
than inorganic farmers. Lack of standard package of practices, costly and complex certification
process and inadequate marketing facilities had been identified as major constraints faced by
the organic farmers.
