National Level Farmers Meet on Commercial Cultivation of Medicinal Plants & Organic Farming

Agriculture accounts for a significant portion of India's gross output. Despite this, agriculture is facing increasing difficulties today. Agriculture's negative impact is visible in the degradation of soil fertility, quality of food, and taste of food, among other things, due to rising cultivation costs, lower output in traditional crop cultivation, synthetic fertilisers and herbicides, and so on.

Organic farming of medicinal crops could be a boon in reducing these negative outcomes. It has been identified as an important component of sustainable agriculture. However, there is a lack of awareness in India about commercial cultivation of medicinal crops and organic farming. It is assumed that farmers are unaware of the significance of this new option for increasing farmer income.

This farmer's meet will be organized by the Organic Farmer Producer Association of India- OFPAI in collaboration with the International Institute of Advanced Agriculture Skill Development- IIAASD. We cordially invite the farmer community to attend this two-day event.
