In the initial years, it has been observed that the yields from Organic Farming are lesser than the modern agricultural farming. So, the farmers found it difficult to undertake large scale production. Also, due to the low yield per hectare, this technique was not financially viable for the small and marginal workers. The products obtained from organic farming have shorter life and are quickly- perishable. Moreover, the choice in production during off-season is quite limited in Organic Farming. Despite these shortcomings in the initial years, India has attained comparative advantage in Organic Farming due to labor intensive techniques. Hence, the availability of labor in abundance popularized Organic Farming in India. Due to the growing awareness about the advantages of the organic farm produced products, there is an increase in the demand for these organic produces in the metro cities.
