Mr. Alwarsamy Chandrashekar, MD A C V Products Pvt. Ltd says-

In the name of green revolution, all the farmers are diverted from their traditional practices organic farming. Their input costs are high and the revenue is less in this method over a period of time. For two generations it is like this and all the farming lands are polluted and impotent. Now again they have been advised to go for organic farming. How can they go immediately . Does any small farmer have money and patience to wait for 4/5 years to go into organic farming. Your question is having the answer –Industrialist are doing organic farming , because they have money and man power.

Mr. Sudheesh Nair, C.E.O, Safe Agroinputs & Consultancy, says-

I already pointed out that organic cultivation is not the technology for common farmers. Big shots are doing organic cultivation. They are not looking at the instant results and they are ready to wait but the common farmer needs to get the profit from his farm to survive. Labor shortage is a huge problem in agriculture and our administrators also neglect our basic food producing people and our farmers are also looking to the high life styles. They are teaching their kids that this is not a fine way to live and to go for other fields. So the new generation is not interested in agriculture as ancient technologies are used in India. We are not ready to adopt bio technology and other inventions.

Mr. Atul Kripashankar Yadav, Director, Biocare India says -

True to your thoughts, the agriculture industry policy has not been revived for decades. I personally think there should not be a discrimination based on the profits of an organic farmer or non-organic one. Rather a unique system has to be formulated to motivate farmers to incline towards organic farming and support the community by establishing value addition facility to the organic produces. A market support base programmer has to be devised with its extension.

Mr. T. V Thomas, CEO Vanilla India Producer Company Ltd says-

Yes, farmers are always in crisis. The only remedy is the value addition of their produce but farmers are not equipped with technical know-how for that. Producers, Co -operatives and companies have great role. Organic farming is a good concept but organic farming in small area means it is not purely organic as the surrounding area is cultivating with chemical fertilizers. Organically produced crops have a premium price and a premium class of people only consumes the same as they are health conscious.

Mr. V Sudhindranath, Director. LTA Trading Private Limited says-

Farmers are in crisis because they are made dependable to external forces for their farming requirement. In case of natural farming, the farmer is self dependent and he no need to be in crisis. Because the cost is very less, yield is more and the price for organic product is in premium. We require the Government focus more in this area;

Mr. Pramod Kumar Rathod, Co-Founder, Tradedoot.com says-

In order to get purchase orders from bigwigs, organic farmers mandatorily have to get their soil, water and other inputs tested by laboratories, which are cost prohibitive and since the input costs for organic production are costlier and the farming is labour intensive cost of cultivation escalates. And since customers hardly differentiate the quality of organic products with inorganic they are not ready to pay premium prices to farmers thus farmer is left with low profit margin. Because of this farmer will never turn out to be an entrepreneur.

Mr. Ravinder Dixit, Assistant Manager, Branding says-

Bottom line of this problem is lack of education. Farmers dont not crisis / risk management , how to get subsidy , as per the soil and environment condition which are the best crops and equipment , from where they can get bank loans and storage and handling is a big problem . So govt should start agri education programme at village level . Take an example of farmers from Kerla or karnataka , they produce spices and fruits rice and some of them are good exports also.

As we know India is an agriculture base country. A genuine organic farmer came from swayampurn gram sanskruti. So, for them they are the best & unknown to us as industrialist.

But the false demands and supply chain put them in crisis and struggle

Mr. Gautam Kar, Proprietor, Emerald Farm says-

The statement is largely true. The nexus between application of commercial chemical fertilizers and incidence of pests and also of various vector and non- vector borne plant diseases have been conclusively proved. The phenomenon of pests building up genetic resistance to a particular molecule of pesticide when used repeatedly has also been conclusively proved. So in a farming model involving the use of chemical fertilizers and concomitant use of pesticides, the farmer has to constantly look for newer and more costly brand of pesticides and fungicides. The risk factors involved in chemical based farming is far higher and the farmer is always on tenterhooks – whether his crop will survive the next incidence of pest or disease. So such farmers are always in crisis. Despite seeing several instances of failure, aggressive marketing techniques of seed and pesticide manufacturing companies, ensure that farmers go in for their products in the hope of a better luck tomorrow. Organic farming which involves saving of seed from the previous crop which has fully adapted itself to local conditions, use of farm based inputs and largely own labour is a time tested process.

The farmer has neither to borrow money to purchase seed nor of fertilizer nor for pesticide. His needs are less: his output may also be less, but at end of the day he is not in penury. He cannot come to the mainstream as an industrial agriculturist because industrial output by its very concept involves expediting of production through mechanization and expenditure of massive amounts of energy. This is contrary to the whole philosophy and ethos of organic farming.

Mr. S. K. Gautam (CEO) Udyam Nurturing Agribusiness says-

The reason for crisis in farmers are the loans which they take to buy chemicals, liabilities which they get in agriculture and any weather or extraneous factor which harms the crop and these take the farmer to a crisis situation while on the other hand organic farmer doesn’t have any direct liabilities. So he has better chances of survival in odds. Market for organic is around INR 1500 crore and growing at an impressive rate of 20% CAGR but it is thinly spread and cost of servicing market is high besides many other factors (as certification, supply chain, processing issues etc.) Therefore products are a little costlier, but I think with the increasing demand economies of scale will be achieved in next 5-7 years which will help in stabilizing organic farmers, traders and companies.

Mr. Manikanteswaran – Chief Technical Executive Aditya Inc says-

Organic farmers will certainly come to the front like industrialists, provided these farmers are encouraged. Quality conscious should be among public and insistence on the quality chemical as well as pest free products. Also corporate should encourage these organic products for their production. Our five star to lower hotels also indulge in this practice.

Makarand R. Churi, Managing Director & Mrs. Anjali Makarand Churi, Director Operations & Technical says-

Yes, this is a fact since the organic farmers do not get production, desired quality and rates in market for efforts taken. Secondly farmers grow what all farmers grow in that area, they see what has demand and all farmers grow demanded items in market. Then it is obvious that they do not get rates as the production is more. They always tell us this is only possible in our area, and they never try any other items. They never go for some other type of produce. Their mindset is fixed and some farmers do not want to change. They should plan proper product and production, only one or two products and what all grows there should not be planted.

Mr Krishna Kumar Singh, Founder.Bankati Goat Farm says-

For Organic farmers it’s hard to find market at their place. Target customers should be aware about the benefits of organic products there is lot of distance gap for a farmer sitting in some town of UP having organic products but target customer is sitting in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore like places middle men purchase their product in such cases at very low prices as per their input cost, it’s good for the farmers who have market within 100 KM range so that they can supply easily.

Soil health is a major factor. Our soils are depleted and it attracts new pests and diseases every day. Organic farming community is small and the term is largely misunderstood. To me any produce which is free from pesticides and chemicals and has nutrition density is Organic.

Mr. Laxmikant Mulgir, Owner, Krishnai foods and Beverages says -

They do not think farming as a business. They do just to do a daily work and they think it as their duty, they need to come in mainstream not individually but in groups. They should understand the demand of their product. As for example coloured capsicum which is selling at 250 to 300 Rs per kg is purchased from the farmer at 25 to 50 Rs kg. Farmer should know at what pricing their produced is sold.
