Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham’s Organic Farming Initiative in Tamil Nadu

The Associate Professor at Department of Chemical Engineering, School of Engineering, Coimbatore, Dr. Maya Mahajan had initiated a project to bring farmers back to traditional farming. K. Kalidas, the Research Associate of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham said, “The shift to organic was challenging as we need to procure all the resources, wait for two weeks and then spray them on farm. With chemicals, we need to just buy and throw them in the farm. However, the inputs cost reduce significantly with organic farming. The chemical cost for turmeric farming is high”.
