Rising interest for protected and good food because of expanding worries over the nature of food, because of synthetic substances, genuine wellbeing dangers, and ecological issues. Organic products have a growing market both in India and globally. During 2019-20 total of 3.67 million hectares of organic certification, area has in India. The CAGR of cultivation of the organic area of India is 24.20 percent during 2012-13 to 2019-20. During 2019-20, Madhya Pradesh has the highest area under organic farming followed by Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Jammu & Kashmir, and Chhattisgarh.  This study is an attempt to understand and document the development of organic agriculture at the India level with the state of Tamilnadu status. It is evident that organic farming has been improved in recent years in India.

The organic farming system follows various principles of natural ecosystem which is based on the structural and functional relationships of natural ecosystems. The food production historypresume that organic farming  was the predominant cultivation method practiced for last decade, but in the beginning of the twentieth century we observed the advanced biochemistry and bio-engineering  immensely changed cultivation system  by uses synthetic fertilizers and pesticides(Fabiansson, 2014). But the consumption of organic food has seen a marked increment around the globe in the past decade. The common reports suggested that organic foods have a better taste as compared to the other conventional kinds, primarily because the crops have been given more time to develop and mature, in addition to usage of environment friendly agricultural techniques.As organic foods and conventional products are close substitutes, consumers conveniently choose the cheaper, conventional category and thus, limiting the demand for organic food. It is difficult to justify the price premium to the consumers as health benefits from organic food consumption cannot be particularly quantified.Organic farming and its coordination and administration enhance the environment as well as human health which have an important objective for all credible economic food production and growth.
