Most farms in India are organic, mainly due to the lack of funds necessary to explore chemical alternatives. This lack of funds is also the reason that these organic farms are not CERTIFIED as organic – the official certification requires money! Only certified organic products can be exported.
Organized by Vandana Shiva in 1991, Navdanya is a network of seed keepers and organic producers spread across 16 states in India. Navdanya has helped set up 65 community seed banks across the country, trained over 5,00,000 farmers in seed sovereignty, food sovereignty and sustainable agriculture over the past two decades, and helped setup the largest direct marketing, fair trade organic network in the country. Farmers are able to reduce their expenses by the 90 percent that was used to buy chemicals and create corporate profits. Navdanya has also set up a learning center, Bija Vidyapeeth (School of the Seed) on its biodiversity conservation and organic farm in Doon Valley, Uttarakhand, North India.
