Schemes for Organic Farming

This topic provides information on schemes for organic farming - Paramparagat Krishi Vikas Yojna (PKVY)

Paramparagat Krishi Vikas Yojna (PKVY)

"Paramparagat Krishi Vikas Yojana (PKVY)” a sub- component of Soil Health Management (SHM) scheme under National Mission of Sustainable Agriculture (NMSA) aims at development of models of excellence in organic farming through a mix of traditional wisdom and modern science in value chain mode to install sustainability, ensure long term soil fertility buildup, resource conservation and to offer safe and healthy food grown through organic practices without the use of agro- chemicals. PKVY also aims at empowering farmers through institutional development through clusters for not only in farm practices management, input production, quality assurance but also in value addition and direct marketing through innovative means. Participatory Guarantee System under PGS-India programme will be the key approach for quality assurance under the PKVY.

Organic Area Selection Criteria

  • Organic farming under PKVY will be promoted preferably in hilly, tribal and rain-fed areas where utilization of chemical fertilizers and pesticides is less and the area has good accessibility for developing market linkages.
  • Cluster approach will be adopted in large patches of up to 1000 ha area.
  • Cluster chosen shall be in contiguous patch, as far as possible, may be extending over few adjacent villages (but not over large areas in sparsely distributed villages).
  • Formation of Gram Panchayat based Farmer Producer Organizations will be encouraged or already existing FPOs will be promoted under the scheme
  • The ceiling of subsidy a farmer is eligible will be for a maximum of one hectare. In a cluster, there should be at least 65% of small and marginal farmers. Women farmers/ SHGs should be given preference

What to do?

  1. Promote Paramparagat Krishi Vikas Yojana (PKVY) for different crop/cropping system suitable to agroclimatic conditions.
  2. In organic farming use more bio-chemicals, bio-pesticides and bio-fertilizers.
