Sikkim Is India’s First Fully Organic State

Sikkim has become India’s first fully organic state by implementing organic practices on around 75,000 hectares of agricultural land.

Organic cultivation is free of chemical pesticides and chemical fertilisers as it tries to strike a harmonious balance with a complex series of ecosystems.

In the long term, organic farming leads in subsistence of agriculture, bio-diversity conservation and environmental protection.

Sustainable farming will also help in building the soil health resulting in sustainable increased crop production, he said.
