Madhya Pradesh has the largest acreage of agricultural land under organic cultivation, followed by Rajasthan and Maharashtra.
The top three States — Rajasthan and Maharashtra are the other two — account for about half of the area under organic cultivation. The top 10 States account for about 80% of the total area under organic cultivation.
At least 20 States have a policy, mission or Act with regard to organic farming. Some States have had a policy for several years but have not been able to cover much area in absolute terms under organic cultivation.
Only Sikkim has become fully organic. Andhra Pradesh and Himachal Pradesh have committed to become 100% natural-farming States by 2027 and 2022, respectively.
