31 January 2019

NIDI takes an active interest in organic farming initiatives in the Northern and Eastern provinces of Sri Lanka, through the Organic Movement of North and East (OMNE). Dr. Prabu Nadaraja, a Director of NIDI and Dr. Shribavan Kanesamoorthy, Director Operations, recently participated in the International Trade Fair supported by the German agency GIZ in Jaffna and held discussions with farmers on the opportunities available for organic farming and for production and sale of organic food products. NIDI is currently developing plans to assist the farmer groups with both organic farming and the sale of organic agricultural products throughout Sri Lanka.
