Black pepper is one of the most important spice crops of India. It is produced mainly in Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu of Southern India. Organic cultivation focuses basically on isolation. Pepper, when grown as an intercrop should still follow the conventions. Therefore, a 25 m wide isolation belt is to be made around the conventional production area of the plantation. The produce from this isolated belt is not to be considered as ‘organic’. In the case of sloppy terrain, care has to be taken to divert runoff water and drift from neighboring farms. Ginger is one of the important spice crops used for its aromatic and medicinal properties. It belongs to the Zingiberaceae family and believed to be a native of south-east Asia. Ginger is commercially sold in rhizome state. Turmeric, the ‘Indian saffron’ is one of the most important spice crops of India. Its culinary and medicinal merit finds its use in drug, cosmetic and food industry in India.

The global changes warranted fastness in food production system and fast foods. In tune with demand, crop production also oriented accordingly. However, the proverb 'Health is a Wealth' is reminded us to keep vigil on system and method of food production and food safety. The ill-effect of conventional chemical based farming well documented and public realized the importance organically produced food and efforts are being made to popularize the organic production. India is a "Land of Spices", each state or union territory in India cultivates one or other spice. Since spices form a part of many medicines the demand for organically produced spices is increasing considerably. Assuming a market growth of 10% in Europe, USA and Japan for organic spice products the world demand for organic spices may grow to 57000 tonnes in the next 10 yeaLarge scale use of high analysis fertilizers and pesticides result environmental hazards and imbalances in soil nutrients. Since spices are high valued and export oriented in nature it is imperative to keep the levels of pesticide residues below tolerance limits in view of the standards set by the importing countries. Hence the book on "Organic Spices" is timely and covers all aspects of organic spice production. The topic includes historical spice trade and importance of spices in food chain. Brief account on organic agriculture movement in the world and its present status and opportunity for organic spices in the world market are given. The chemistry and different methods of composting are included in the organic manures chapter will be informative. Microbes play a greater role in agriculture, a separate chapter devoted on microbes and plant growth promoting rhizobacteria would definitely enrich the readeNot only that, the topics on biological control of insect pests, nematodes, fungus and bacteria of spices highlighted in separate chapters would be of interest in organic production system. The importance, composition, uses, botany and varieties, organic way of production of spices like black pepper, cardamom, ginger, turmeric, chillies and paprika, nutmeg, vanilla, seed spices like cumin, fennel, fenugreek, coriander and their harvest and post harvest processing are enumerated. The chapters on good agricultural practices (GAP) and organic certification procedures outlined for adoption. This would serve as a reference book for researchers, teachers and students besides farmers, traders and consumers.

In view of the economic importance of organic farming, the present study was taken up in Erode district. The net income per hectare of organic and inorganic turmeric was 160904.46 and 110691.67 respectively. The net income per hectare of organic and inorganic cotton was 78595.23 and 60928.50 respectively. The results of production function for organic turmeric revealed that farm yard manure, neem cake, jeevamirtham, vermicompost, panchakaviya and human labour contributed significant influence on yield of organic turmeric. The results of production function for organic cotton revealed that seeds, farm yard manure, neem cake, jeeva amirtham, vermicompost, panchakaviya and human labour contributed significant influence on yield of organic cotton. Five and three types of marketing channels for turmeric and cotton were identified in the study area and price spread were estimated for each of the marketing channels. The analysis revealed that the price spread for turmeric was lower in channel IV namely farmer- regulated market- retailer- consumer. Whereas cotton price spread was lower in channel II namely farmer- regulated market- retailer- consumer.

Millions of farmers throughout the world cannot or will not accept the "Green Revolution" approach to agriculture. What can the principles of Organic Agriculture - with or without certification - contribute to rural development in the tropics and subtropics? The question was central to an international workshop held in Bonn in October 2002, organised by the German non-governmental organisation AGRECOL. AGRECOL is a non-profit association and supports ecologically sound land use in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. The members of AGRECOL have strong professional links to development cooperation. They work with government agencies and NGOs, in education and research, or as consultants.

Presenting an overwhelming argument for replacing modern farming methods with organic techniques, this book explores the history, politics, and practicalities of organic farming. Adrian Myers shows how the current techniques of agriculture and horticulture based on chemical fertilizers, which inevitably bring about the deterioration of soil life, cannot provide a long-term sustainable future for humankind. "Organic Futures" shows what we can learn from 4,000 years of sustainable organic agriculture in the Far East and explains how organic farming is different from conventional agriculture. It demonstrates the damaging effects of conventional farming and discusses the importance of maintaining soil fertility. Presenting a vision of an organic future, the book also documents inspiring developments in both the West and the Third World.
