Niti Ayog CEO:
"Organic farming in India has huge potential"India has a huge potential for the consumption of organic products and attempts should be made by progressive farmers to promote it, said NITI Ayog CEO Amitabh Kant on Wednesday.
“Some should become great organic farmers. India needs a couple of success stories. If farmers get better unit realisation value, many will emulate it. Sikkim has done outstanding work in the field of organic farming. I even found that Kiwi (fruit) from Arunachal Pradesh was of better quality than that in New Zealand,” he said in an event marked to release of a report on organic farming.
“As per the study conducted by the International Competence Centre for Organic Agriculture in eight cities in India, there is huge market for organic food. There are opportunities for organic farming businesses.”
Kant however said there were challenges in the availability of input seeds and planting material.
“Availability of organic seeds and planting machines is the most limiting factor. Also, we need to establish facilities that are able to produce consistent quality products. What is critical is consistent quality production. This is where we are lacking,” he said.
