Bhutan aims to be the first nation in the world to be 100% organic, in reference to what is grown on its territory. Bhutan is a small kingdom located in the Himalayan mountain range, characterized by a population mostly of Buddhist religion and known for its commitment to the pursuit of happiness, so much so that the nation does not take into account the national economic GDP, but a real indicator of the nation's well-being (GDP - Gross National Happiness).

Il Bhutan aims to be the first nation in the world 100% organic, in reference to what is grown on its territory. Bhutan is a small kingdom located on the mountain range ofHimalayas, characterized by a predominantly religious population Buddhist and known for its commitment to the pursuit of happiness, so much so that the nation would not take into account the national economic GDP, but a real indicator of the well-being of the nation denominato Gross National Happiness (GDP).
Il Ministry of Agriculture of Bhutan he declared that he wanted to ensure a complete transition of the territory to organic farming methods by 2020. All those pesticides and herbicides used by intensive agriculture will therefore be abolished. The Ministry of Agriculture will endeavor to make this vital transition gradual but complete.
Already at this time in Bhutan a low employment of chemical products in agriculture, an aspect that should easily allow the nation to transform itself into the leading state of the complete transition to the methods of organic cultivation on its territory. The motto of the new organic farmers will consist in defending the earth's resources and in producing healthy, local food, free of chemical residues, with which the inhabitants can feed.
Health, ecology, care and solidarity will be the four passwords that will guide Bhutan towards change. The same key concepts will be applied in the management of the sale of organic products that will be grown on the national territory. The complete transition toorganic farming will allow to preserve the planet's resources, protect the environment and maintain the soil fertility much longer than with intensive methods.
We will also take care to use the water resources avoiding any possible waste. The use of chemical products will be avoided, since, although at first they cause a higher production yield, later they are the cause of an irrecoverable iimpoverishment of agricultural land. They could also cause health problems for growers themselves or consumers, as project promoters have pointed out. The initiative promoted by the Ministry of Agriculture, called the National Organic Program, will need the support of ordinary citizens and all those who work in agriculture, so that the goal can be achieved within the set deadline.
The country plans to export its food products to neighboring countries, starting with China and India, taking advantage of the growing demand for organic even in rapidly developing Asian countries.
