    • Abstract:
      Keeping in view the ecological concerns regarding residual toxicity due to indiscriminate and excessive use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and their harmful effects on soil microflora and biodiversity, the paper suggests an effective model for taking up organic farming in the reclaimed sodic lands. Efficient cropping system involves growing of legumes either in sequence or as intercrop/ companion crop raised for greenmanuring/fodder/grain along with main crop provides an excellent opportunity to restore and sustain the fertility/productivity of soils. Bio-intensive pest management involing physical, cultural and mechanical methods of pest management, by making use of target specific, economically viable and ecologically sound bio-pesticides (parasites, predators and microorganisms), pheromone trap and botanicals as well as avoidance of pest, and disease through cropping system approach including trap crops is warranted. Water management is essential for harnessing synergies of biological sources with plant requirement. Livestock management is necessary for maintenance of organic nutrient supply chain. Socio-economic intervention for community based approach of implementation of organic farming system through formation of Self Help Groups of the farmers at village level is also important. To make it a success, community based approach of inspection and certification of organic food and local marketing through rural women's leadership is warranted. Besides, reliable organized, market with competitive pricing of organically produced horticultural products coupled with insurance option to cover the risk associated with organic farming is necessary.
