Organic Farms Provide a Clue for India's Struggling Farms

r> He now also raises pigs, and sells his products to five-star hotels, expatriates and wealthy Indians, garnering strong weekly sales worth around 2,500 dollars.

Another more recent start-up, Heritage Health Food, delivers boxed organic food grown on 80 acres of leased land.

'Agriculture is the sector that's going to be the next big thing. It's an unorganised sector so there's a lot of opportunity,' said Indira Khosla, a co-founder of the company.

'High-value crops include fruits, vegetables, milk, poultry products and fish.'

An Indian Council for Agricultural Research study showed that the two percent agricultural growth rate masked a six percent growth rate in fruits and vegetables, Sud said.

As incomes and food consumption have gone up, wheat reserves fell last year and the country was forced to import the commodity for the first time in six years.

But Sud said that with huge foreign reserves thanks to 15 years of a booming economy that is now growing at more than nine percent per year, food security can be managed.
