Indian Bio Agriculture Market Trends:
In recent years, there has been a significant shift toward bio agriculture practices in India. This trend can be accredited to the excessive use of fertilizers and artificial growth regulators that have led to soil pollution and increased the levels of chemicals in the food chain. Besides this, the growing health-consciousness has encouraged consumers to opt for organic products, which in turn is providing a positive impact on the industry. Along with this, the rising environmental concerns have also prompted farmers to practice bio agriculture as it is a chemical-free method that ensures optimum utilization of natural resources and helps in conserving them. Moreover, the Government of India has introduced various schemes and programs to promote bio- agriculture so as to meet the rising demand for food across the country. Some of these schemes include the National Mission for Sustainable Agriculture (NMSA)/Paramapragat Krishi Vikas Yojana (PKVY), Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY), Mission for Integrated Development of Horticulture (MIDH), National Mission on Oilseeds & Oil Palm (NMOOP), and Network Project on Organic Farming of ICAR.
