According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), sustainable agriculture "is the successful management of resources for agriculture to satisfy changing human needs while maintaining or enhancing the quality of environment and conserving natural resources". Organic agriculture also offers trade opportunities for farmers in the developing and developed countries. Emerging from 42,000 ha under certified organic farming during 2003-04, the organic agriculture has grown almost 29 fold during the last 5 years. By March, 2010, India has brought more than 4.48 million ha area under organic certification process. However, this market is not very well known to most farmers, especially those living in the developing countries. In developing countries it is therefore essential for major key players (e.g. NGOs, farmer organizations, traders, exporters etc.) that promote organic farming to have up-to-date information on the available opportunities (market requirements) and trends of the organic market

Keywords: Organic products, Food and Agriculture Ocganization (FAO).
