Belgium wants organic vegetables, Uttarakhand fails to meet their demands

The demand of fresh and organic vegetables have increased in the international market so much that various countries around the world are looking towards India and its hill states to meet their demands. European country Belgium have asked Uttarakhand to provide them with organic vegetables, especially French Beans (Frasbeans). The country expects 1 tonne of Frasbeans every week from Uttarakhand. However, it seems Uttarakhand will be unable to fulfill their demands.

Since Uttarakhand does not have any region where organic farming is being done on large scale, the Uttarakhand government is seeking help from neighbor state Himachal Pradesh, where organic farming is done on a relatively larger scale.  Even after spending crore of rupees in order to encourage organic farming opportunities in the state, Uttarakhand have been unable to improve its organic farm produce.
