The indiscriminate use of chemicals and pesticides in the state has been linked to a large number of hazards. The impact on human health, soil and the environment has prompted the government and farming community to take steps toward promotion of organic farming in the state.
Organic Farming is a holistic production system that combines tradition, innovation and science with modern approaches in terms of improved varieties, new machinery and equipment, and bio-inputs. It relies on the management of farms by using on-farm agronomic, biological and mechanical methods for crop production without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and synthetic additives. The organic production system sustains the health of the soils, ecosystems, and people.
Organic food is certainly worth imbibing in our eating habits. Apart from being chemical- free, it also has higher nutritional value than the conventional food. So, going Organic helps us promote better eating habits and a healthier world.
The Organic produce is processed in Certified Organic processing units of Punjab Agro and various products are being marketed under the Punjab’s own brand named “FIVE RIVERS”
