The association is one of the two winners of the Organic Medal of Honour, instituted by Xichong, a Chinese Municipality in association with the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movement (IFOAM) Asia in South Korea.

“The award will be presented in Xichong on May 30. The prize money is USD 5,000, which is roughly about 3.5 lakh Indian rupees apart from the gold medal. This will be used by the association,” Ashok Kumar V, state secretary of the association told TNM.
