Findings of the Organic Bazaar Impact in Aurangabad


A Japanese team from Kobe University, Japan, independently evaluated the Organic Bazaar in Aurangabad district of Maharashtra. The survey was done over a period of 3 months. The team consisted of two senior professors and one senior researcher. This expert team conducted an independent, unbiased, and detailed assessment. Now, here are the findings that I am excited to share with you -

Findings –
i) For the grain, farmers get 53% higher price in the organic bazaar and the organic link than to conventional markets.


ii) For the leafy vegetables farmers get 118% and the other vegetables 87% higher market price than conventional market .

... and 40% of farmers own less that 2.5 acres of land (considered really small)

Dear Joy,
You are part of a movement which carries the seeds of greener India. The independent research findings would boost the morale for sure.

Good to you and team.
