To help farmers with organic certification process, Ekalavya Foundation has been recognized as Regional Council to certify organic process of crop production across the country from the year 2017.
The central Government has introduced “Participatory Guarantee System” to certify the organic produce. Farmers can get their organic produce certified collectively. Also, through this online platform farmers can access National level markets by registering in Jaivikh Bharat Online Portal. To verify the authenticity of the certification a bar code is allocated to each farmer, which can be scanned by the customer during the purchase of the product.
In the year 2019-20, 1549 farmers registered from all over Telangana for organic certification out of which 639 farmers were given PGS Certificates. From 2017 a total of 4448 farmers belonging to 592 Groups have registered from both the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana out of which 3029 farmers were given organic certificates till date.
