Welcome to Our Website
Vegetable Growers association of India, promoted by National Horticulture Board, Ministry of Agriculture Govt of India.
VGAI has covered most of the area of Maharashtra as an area of operation covering 6 to 7 Dists. It has at present 9200 members registered with the society. The association is primarily involved in promotion of Agriculture/ Horticulture with special emphasis on organic farming. We have obtained certification for 2800 farms and 6400 are under conversion for seeking certification. The process of certification was initiated way back in 2005-06 and for successive years the efforts have been kept continued. We have roped in Skal International, SGS, USOKA and Aditi Organic for the purpose of certification by qualifying the standards established under Indian NSOP (National Standard on Organic Production), NOP USDA organic and EU 2091-92. The response to organic farming is very encouraging and number of registration is likely to swell to 10000 and above by the end of this year.Read more
