Abstract:  There are sufficient evidences that the organic farming in India is more than 5000 years old. Due to organic farming soil fertility was maintained with continuous crop production for a long period. In India green revolution was started in 1966-67. In green revolution hybrid seeds, chemical insecticides, weedicides and chemical fertilizers were used in heavy quantities for getting more and more crop yield. Consequently, soil fertility, soil productivity, biodiversity and quality of food material were adversely affected along with the environment. A study was carried out to overcome these problems and use of organic manures and insecticides have been recommended in a better scientific way.
