India now has over 30% of world’s organic producers
With over 835,000 certified organic producers, it is home to more than 30 percent of the total number of organic producers (2.7 million) in the world. Uganda (210,352) and Mexico (210,000) would be the second and third largest organic producers, respectively.
The 19th edition of the Organic Agriculture Report claimed that the organic agriculture area and the value of its products have seen a steady increase over the years. The data was collected from 178 countries by the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture, the State of Sustainability Initiative and the International Trade Center.
The increase in organic producers comes as a result of a large number of entrepreneurs advocating organic farming and its complementary methods, who
are spearheading the awareness of organic farming.
However, when it comes to the area under certified organic cultivation, India contributes only 2.59%, in other words: 1.5 million hectares of the total organic cultivation area of 57.8 million hectares. Thus, amongst the regions with the largest areas of organically managed agricultural land, India ranks 9th.
