Abstract

Organic agricultural products have a unique method of production which protects the environment and minimizes the erosion of soil and thereby reduces pollution by encouraging a balanced system of usage of organic standard for agriculture products in India and other economies. The main objective of this case study is to assess the factors that influence the utilization of the geographical area and export activities of organic products in the Asian continent including India. This case study highlights the issues related to organic farming and is developed by using secondary data to assess the factors that influence agricultural organic products. The secondary data were obtained from exhaustive literature reviews of journals and internet sources. The scope of the case study is limited to the organic products and land areas which are used for its cultivation. The analysis of secondary data reveals that along with the increase in production, there is also an increase in the different varieties of organic agricultural products. It is evident that organic farming has increased due to increased land usage for the cultivation in recent years in the Asian continent. From the study it is observed that the cumulative aggregate growth rate has increased from 6% to 29% during the year 2010-11 till 2015-16.

Keywords: Organic Agricultural Products, Wild Harvest, Cultivated Area, Cumulative Aggregate Growth
