Poster summary

The excessive use of chemicals is an inorganic food production method, which made the health-conscious people explore and follow organic farming. The present study highlights the acceptance and perception of farmers and consumers towards organic farming and its benefits from farm level to marketing of the final product to ensure sustainability. Furthermore, for the farmers, it is essential to stand individually with self-interest and zeal to become a "successful farmer" following the pattern, integration and certification of organic farming. The scenario and prospect of organic farming, highlighting the barriers, which hinder a farmer from adopting and investing sustainably are also taken into account here.
