The use of synthetic chemicals for agriculture was halted completely in 2005 by the Union territory and Lakshadweep, after Sikkim, allows 100 per cent organic farming
Lakshadweep is physically cut off from the mainland; for the last 15 years, no chemical has been shipped into this territory, except medicines and some cosmetics.
This has already made Lakshadweep 100 per cent organic by default.
Lakshadweep consists of 36 islands and is India’s smallest UT. It is a uni-district UT and comprises 12 atolls, three reefs, five submerged banks and 10 inhabited islands.
All islands are 220-440 km away from Kochi.
