Abstract: Ever wondered why people aren’t healthy as they use to be these days and why the generation is facing new health problems? Manmade chemicals cause the environment to get poisoned and everybody’s health is at risk? How we went from a healthy nation to a sick nation? This is because of three dangers that threaten our food security i.e, chemical fertilizers, pesticide and genetically modified crops. The government invest the collected taxes to subsidies these chemical fertilizers. In the year 2009, the government spent 98000 crore rupees on subsidizing chemical fertilizers. Although the fertilizers provide food for the plant they are unhealthy for them as they are artificially produced. It also percolates and gets mixed with the ground water. Along with chemical fertilizers the farmers also uses chemical pesticides. This pesticide not only kills specific pest but also many friendly organisms. People are getting health conscious these days. They are ready to pay a premium price for good chemical free products. Organic products have the quality of satisfying the wants of this era. In this paper I tried to study the importance of organic farming in this growing population and how can it be a tool of economic development. I have based the study of organic farming on Sikkim as this.
