Goa will soon be declared an organic state, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant. Sawant urged farmers and dairy owners to focus on the generation of vermicompost, which he said would replace chemical fertilisers as manure for agricultural and horticultural crops.

 "In some time, we are going to declare Goa an organic state under a Central scheme. We are creating 500 clusters... We have decided to stop using chemical fertilisers," Sawant said. "The process has started. Soil testing is going on in the 500 clusters. Please stop using chemical fertilisers. Use manure, cow dung."
