Top Startup In Organic Food Business In India

Organic farming is one of the latest concepts which promises to revolutionize the process of farming in order to ensure sustainable development. The food which is produced from organic farms is called organic food. There are very strict rules which a farmer needs to follow for a farm to be certified as an organic farm officially by some of the top regulating authorities. Organic farming means farming without the use of chemical fertilizers, insecticides, pesticides or weedicides. Instead, natural products are used to fertilize the field and to counteract the problem of pests and weeds.

This type of farming is developed with the help of scientists working closely with the agriculture sector of India. The output of an organic farm is less as compared to that of a traditional farm but the quality of the food is thought to be better because of less contamination of harmful chemicals in the food. Due to this, many people are preferring organic over traditionally grown food, mainly because of the growing popularity of health and fitness culture.
