  Bio-Dynamic Farms in India

The Biodynamic Movement started in India in the early 1990's. Amongst the first initiatives were the Kurinji farms near Kodaikanal, the Maikaal cotton project in Madhya Pradesh and the tea projects in Darjeeling (Ambootia, Selimbong, Makaibari) and South India (Singampatti - Oothu). There are many other practitioners of the BD method who are individual farmers, the ISKCON farm near Mysore, Nandanvan Estate and Balmadies Estate both near Kodaikanal, and Bhaikaka Krishi Kendra in Gujarat to name just a few.

Interest in Biodynamic agriculture is constantly increasing, especially over the past five years, among the organic farmers of India. This is reflected by increased participation in the training courses every year and the increased membership in the Association. There are more than 500 small and big farms practicing biodynamic agriculture throughout the country, though most of them not formally certified, producing a broad range of crops including fruits, vegetables, grains, coffee, tea and spices.  Even small farmers recognize biodynamic agriculture practices. Three major initiatives, located in the Northern and Southern parts of India are promoting biodynamic agriculture among 3000 small farms.
