Organic agriculture is an ecological production management system that promotes and enhances biological cycles and soil biological activity. It is based on minimal use of off-farm inputs and on management practices that restores maintains and enhances ecological harmony. 
Organic agriculture practices cannot ensure that products are completely free of residues. However, methods are used to minimize pollution from air, soil and water 
The primary goal of organic agriculture is to optimize the health and productivity of interdependent communities of soil life, plants, animals and people. 
Why need Organic farming? 
Protect Future generations: You receive four times the exposure of at least eight widely used cancer causing pesticides in food. The food choice will impact your child’s health in future.
Prevent Soil Erosion : Soil is the foundation of the farming. But chemically fertilized soil is used excessively for getting extra yield which causes the soil erosion.
Protect Water Quality: Water makes up two third of our body mass and covers three fourths of the planet . Chemical pesticides(some cancer causing) contaminate the ground water in polluting the primary source of our drinking water.

Save Energy: More energy is used to produce synthetic fertilizers . Organic farming is based upon labour-intensive practices such as weeding by hand and using green manure. Organic produce uses less energy therefore saving in energy.
Keep Chemicals Off our Plate: EPA considers 60% of all herbicides 90% of all fungicides and 30%of all insecticides are carcinogenic. Chemical Pesticides are linked to birth defects, never damage and genetic mutation .
Protect firm Workers Health : A Cancer Institute study found that farmers exposed to Chemical Pesticides had a six time greater risk then non-farmers. Pesticides poisonings among firm workers have raised an average of 14% per year. Field workers suffer the highest rates of occupational illness..
Support a True Economy: Organic farming is less expensive then conventional farming, conventional farming do not reflect hidden costs include pesticide regulation, testing, hazardous waste disposal & clean up, and damage to the environment, which in and it, is priceless.
Promote Biodiversity: Monocropping is the practice of planting large plots of land with the same crop year after year. While this approach tripled firm production has left the soil lacking in natural minerals and nutrients .To replace the nutrients, chemical fertilizers are used which only compound the problem.
Healthy Food: Organic farming starts with an abundance of nutrients in the soil which leads to the nourishment of the plant, which ultimately give true flavour, better taste and healthy food. That’s why many chefs use organic fool in their recipes.
Environmental Friendly: 

 Organic inputs are biodegradable, residual free, easy available, Cost effective, do not effective the balance of nature and non pollutants
