UOCB has spearheaded the Organic Cultivation Movement in India. Apart from the constant visit list of farmers, officers, and NGOs, many states like HP and AP seek consultation from the board on organic best practices.
The board has successfully established comprehensive supply chains from farms to markets and advocates a transparent buy-sell process. UOCB made substantial progress in various product categories, and the demand for Basmati, Mandua, Chillies, Wheat, Pulses, Traditional Rice, and perishables like vegetables has surged. Mandua, cultivated widely in Uttarakhand, has become a part of ‘India Mix’- a mid-day meal input, standardized with the World Food Program (WFP), creating a market of 1000 metric tons. Organic Dehradun Basmati and the basmati regions in US Nagar now have a market potential of 2000 hectares.
