The growing awareness of the significance of environment preservation, as well as the health hazards connected with agrochemicals, and the desire of consumers to eat nutritious and safe food are the primary drivers of worldwide interest in other agricultural forms. The average annual growth rate of 20-25% is growing tremendously both in mature and developing countries. Organic farming seems to be one of the fastest growing agricultural sectors. Nevertheless, a number of issues have to be addressed before a large-scale transition towards organic farming can place. This article explores the idea of organic agriculture with the Indian continent. In addition, the breadth and profitability of organic farming in the Indian market are shown. It also covers organic farming outcomes and organic farming pest control. Large areas of rich soil in India, mainly downpour as well as located in North-East, are likely to be used as potentially organic agriculture zones, where fertilizer and chemical uses are limited and output is low. Further study in organic farming will be available in the future to investigate more in this area to explore the full potential.
