    Dear Aysha, Organic farming is pro-farmers. P. P. Reddy, former director of Indian Institute of Horticultural Research, had stated that organic farming can minimize crop loss caused due to nematodes (a type of parasitic worms). Secondly, over time, the chemicals from synthetic pesticides and herbicides, damage the soil quality and fertility which, in turn, affects the crop’s yield. With 58% of the villagers dependent on agriculture for livelihood, and 60% of India’s land being cultivable, organic farming seems to be one of the ways of improving the farmer’s finances. I hope you are satisfied with the above response. In case you would like to have more information, we are happy to address your queries.
