After thousands of farmer suicides in India, the Indian farmers have had enough! They’re returning to organic farming.

Western farming practices nearly devastated Indian farmlands. It affected everything from the soil, the water, the health of the people and animals, and the region as a whole.

But the good news is that they are pulling out of this disaster as giants in the Organic Farming Industry. Lessons learned, experiences under the belt, they are now an authority in how agriculture should be done.

In a last-ditch attempt to save the country’s weakened resources, and the health of its people, India has emerged as a global leader in organic farming, as they’ve welcomed 600,000 certified producers.

In the 1970s and 1980s, the “Green Revolution” introduced farmers in the state of Punjab to synthetic fertilizers, high-yield seeds and irrigation, which transformed the country into an economic powerhouse, allowing them to produce enough wheat and rice to feed a once-starving population.

This all seemed good and well until they realized that they could no longer survive on unsustainable commercial agriculture with all of its pesticides, herbicide and numerous other chemicals.

And then there was the problem with water. Organic Farming Water Irrigation is one thing, but as important as water is to sustain a people and a nation, they had a much bigger problem on their hands.

While offering a sense of hope to a country that was once in turmoil, it soon became clear that the West’s version of farming was not sustainable.

Because the seeds were high-yield, they required a lot of water, more water than was naturally available through rainfall, causing farmers to begin drilling in fields, searching for water for irrigation.

The state’s water supply became threatened due to the constant drilling, as well as contamination caused by the large amounts of chemicals that were increasingly being poured into the soil.

State of Punjab, where commercial agriculture was first introduced, now has the country’s highest cancer rates.

As the damage to the state’s water supply continued to threaten the region’s soil and waterways, a public health crisis was declared in Punjab in the 1990s, just 20 years after growers were essentially forced into commercial agriculture techniques that were backed by U.S. advisers who were supported by giant seed companies like Monsanto.

Severe health issues began to show up in the Indian people. Sick children, skeletal health problems and premature aging, to name a few. But the biggest health problem they now have is cancer.

Farmers in the region are now backing away completely from Western commercial agriculture and are going back to their centuries old practices of organic farming. This includes Organic Farming Crop Rotation for healthy soil.

And once their organic fields start yielding the abundance as is expected with organic farming, they can sell their produce for higher prices and get back on economic track again after a huge loss due to Western conventional farming practices.

This is good news for the Indian farmers who have gone through a tremendous amount of loss from suicides and deadly false claims by Monsanto, who forced Indian farmers to use their toxic and worthless seeds.

Some organic farmers in Punjab have increased their income from $391 per acre to at least $469 per acre, in organic fruitsaddition to saving money on pesticides.

Today, thanks to the awakening of many farmers, Punjab now has approximately 1,500 hectares of certified organic land.

The Indian government is now initiating an Organic Farming National Plan that will help reverse the environmental fallout of Western farming practices. By returning health to the soil, they are putting health back into the hands of the people.

No one should have to go through what India went through. But now they are fighting back and getting control of their food and health issues once again.

Look to the ancient path of organic farming and adhere to it today. It is for our health and the health of future generations.
