CNBC-TV18's Deepthi Bathini And Surabhi Upadhyay report on how a small organic farm has become a multi-crore rupee business involving over 3,000 farmers.


Likitha Bhanu has re-definied organic growth. What began as a hobby 18 months ago is now a booming Rs 15 crore business. Around 18 months ago, Bhanu decided to take a year off after graduation to join her mother Padmaja in a small organic farming project on their family's farms at Shankarpally in Telangana. But what began as a way to distribute excess produce has today become terra greens.
