Growing awareness about health and environmental issues are paving way for increasing demand of organically produced agri-products across the world. Globally 1.6 million farm producers use organic methods and approximately 80 percent of these producers are in developing countries. The estimated global market for organic products in the year 2012 was approximately 70.1 billion US dollars. In India the organic food market is approximately of INR 5.6 billion. This is an emerging opportunity for generation of employment and income at village level as well as across the agricultural value chain.

The state of Jammu and Kashmir is the third largest state in terms of area under organic farming. Given diverse agro climatic conditions coupled with presence of by-default organic production, the state has vast scope for development of the organic agriculture. Further the state has large population of livestock and vast geographical areas under vegetation which provide ideal base for input supply and spreading organic farming. To realize this potential, state need to build awareness, knowledge and confidence among stakeholders including farmers and service providers, about organic farming.
