Govt. Schemes That Can Be Used To Promote Organic Farming
There are very few government schemes that are meant exclusively to promote organic farming in India. However, if there is a policy conviction and commitment, it is seen that various schemes that exist apart from the few exclusive schemes can indeed be used to support the promotion of organic farming practices on a large scale. ASHA, with the help of a volunteer called Aditya Sethia, put together a compilation of such schemes which can be used, across Ministries. While it is not claimed that such a compilation is exhaustive or is even being used by the governments today to actually promote environmentally sustainable agriculture, the potential of using these exists and we hope that readers will have use for this compilation to ensure that schemes like these are leveraged for promoting organic farming practices.
