Chhattisgarh state launches “Organic Farming Mission” in India

This is how government policy influences the market in a positive way.  Imagine how much different our agricultural landscape would look in the US if we adopted the same practices on a large scale.

RAIPUR: In a bid to boost organic farming in state, Chhattisgarh government, on Friday, launched an ‘organic farming mission’ in districts of Bastar, Bilaspur and Ambikapur. Under the mission, the government would provide infrastructure, certification and knowledge to farmers, who opt for organic farming.
Speaking on the occasion, state agriculture minister, Chandrashekhar Sahu, said the mission would benefit farmers, who diversify to fertilizer-free farming.
He said since the demand of organic food was increasing in markets outside the state, the department would provide required certification to enable farmers to get the best price for their produce.
