Organic Uttarakhand Story
With the continuous increase in the number of organic activities and farmers through various projects in Uttarakhand, a great need was felt to constitute an organization to promote, coordinate, the dispersed organic activities and efforts for Organic Farming in the state. Uttarakhand Organic Commodity Board came into existence on 19 May 2003. The board was registered under the societies registration act, 1860 and is acting as the nodal agency of the state to enhance organic activities in agriculture and allied sectors like Horticulture, Medicinal Aromatic Plants & Herbs, and animal husbandry throughout the state. On-going programs, many of which are funded externally presently provide the source for human resources for the technical and marketing activities.
