‘Organic farming sector to touch `100 bn’
GK NEWS NETWORK
New Delhi, July 10: The Indian organic farming sector is likely to be worth Rs.100 billion by 2015 and will create millions of jobs, a leading industry lobby said Sunday.
The current market is worth Rs.2,500 crore, said the study, “Organic Products-The Way Ahead”, conducted by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (Assocham).
“The Indian organic food market is growing at a steady rate of 40 percent annually,” said Assocham Secretary General D.S. Rawat.
It can create millions of jobs as it can spur over 30 percent of employment per hectare as against non-organic farming, according to Assocham.
