Abstract: TIndia’s main occupation and economy is based on agriculture. Large section of population of India is involved in some or the other form of agriculture or products related to agriculture. Agriculture plays an prominent impact on the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth of India which in turn reflects on service sector and manufacturing sector relating to consumers goods and services. Per-capita holding of land of large section of Indian population is less than two acres, and there lively-hood depends on it. Since the holding of land is in such small proportion, modern means of agriculture and technology cannot be introduced or adopted. Thereby it has a impact on earning and livelihood of people in rural areas as the productivity from these lands is not at par due to non-implementation of modern means of technology in agriculture. Deteriorating condition of soil and quality of land is also a factor which is affecting productivity. Excessive use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides to achieve greater volume of growth is the main cause of deteriorating soil conditions and quality. The vegetables and food grains are losing their nutritional value due to use of harmful chemical fertilizers and pesticides as it is having adverse effects on human body due to their consumption. The fear-some diseases in form of cancer, diabetic, blood pressure, stomach related problems, adverse effects on children’s, food poisoning, skin problem, effects on mental and physical changes, hormonal changes etc are largely related to intake and consumption of contaminated or nutrition less food or product. Due to consumption and side-effects of these harmful adulterated food products on human body, the World Health Organisation has issued a warning and awareness programmes highlighting the effects of these contaminated and unhygienic food. When one says ‘Health is Wealth’ and to sustain and maintain health, human beings needs to consume healthy and hygienic food. A reform in form of Yogic Organic farming is what should be introduced in agricultural practices. This article lays down the benefits and valuable significance of Yogic Organic farming.
