Therefore, it is concluded that organic farming can, contribute to several of the declared policy objectives of the CAP. Commercial exploitation of microorganisms for production of useful products Access date: 01 Oct, 2013 calculated the annual, costs from contamination of drinking water with pesticides in the UK to be approx. They also theorized that previous analyses—several of which have found no difference in conventional versus organic antioxidant levels—may have been thwarted by too-short study periods and confounding variables like weather. %PDF-1.2 %���� This is mostly due to a lack of results from comparative, investigations of organic versus conventionally produced food. Part-1: Food Microbiology Export market of organic food has been reported up to Rs 700 crores. Farm input and output: The studies reviewed about on-farm balances of nutrients, water and energy with respect to organic and conventional farming can be summarised as follows: nutrient balances of organic farms in general are close to zero. Quantitative sector modelling of organic farming EU-Project FAIR3-CT96-1794: Organic farming and the CAP. Current Trends in Organic Tree Fruit Production. Some examples of microbe-driven outcomes set the stage for describing how important it is to seize research opportunities in food and agriculture microbiology. Morison, H. Raven, M.D. The increasing demand for organic produce has created new export opportunities and many developing countries have started to tap lucrative export markets for organic produce. (2001). However, policies, specifically targeting organic farming support do not remain beyond dispute and a sound, justification of these is necessary. Draft of Technical Deliverable, EC (2000). (2) The analysis of physicochemical characteristics of rice include amylose content, protein content, gel consistency, volume of expansion of cooked rice, water absorption, and cooking time. (2000). Forschungsrapport 121: Roskilde: Universität Roskilde. Hine, C.F. To date, it is the environmental impacts of or-ganic farming that have received most research attention and while some still contest the environmental benefits of organic farming ; Shepherd 2003) , there is growing consensus that it does indeed offer certain environmental benefits over and above those of conventional agriculture.

An assessment of the total external costs of UK agriculture. Study of various traditional food processing and post harvest technologies of Tribal and Rural comunuities of India, Microbiology is the study of microscopic living organisms are recognized for their ubiquitous presence, diverse metabolic activity, and unique survival strategies under extreme conditions. Potentially, organic farming leads to a higher diversity of wildlife habitats due to more highly diversified living conditions, which offer a wide range of housing, breeding and nutritional supply. ¹’Sustainable Food News. A comparative review of the economic situation of organic and conventional farms, in Europe up to the year 2000 (Offermann & Nieberg 2000) shows that on average profits of, organic farms are similar to those of comparable conventional farms, with nearly all organic. Part-4: Industrial Microbiology and Microbial Biotechnology should be based on long term evaluation of all organic input substance. India’s organic area in 2005 was 0.186 million hectares and wild collection area was 2.386 million hectares that has increased to 0.51 million hectares and 5.18 million hectares respectively in 2013.
