Abstract

Organic farming is an emerging area for crop and livestock production, processing, marketing, trade and consumption, and, therefore, for research all over the world. In developed countries it has made significant inroads but the developing countries especially the Asian countries are in the stage of conception only, as far as organic livestock production is concerned. Some Latin American countries have started exporting organic meat products to developed countries. In such a scenario, information needed in the area of organic livestock production has increased significantly. This paper reviews the developments so far and prospects for future for organic meat production in Asian countries.
