A farmer himself with over four decades of
hands-on experience in farming, Omprakash Mor is known for pioneering the organic movement in India. He is easily today's global farmer-citizen with his exposure to modern farming techniques in Europe, America and Israel.
He graduated in the seventies with a motivation to till family land and his desire for technical knowledge earned him a scholarship in 1980 at the premier 'Rupin Institute', Israel. After a short stint in Kibbutz he returned to India and soon became an acknowledged farmer leader with his successful experiments in dryland farming practices.

In 1990 he took completely to Organic Farming, realizing the needs of the future. In course of work, he interacted with some leading philosophers of organic movement - including the living legend, Fukoka from Japan in 1993.
He founded the farmers body 'Vidarbha Organic Farmers Association (VOFA)' and set up EcoFarms (India) Ltd. in 1995.
In respect to his commitment to the cause he has been championing, he had been awarded many times over.
He is:
1. Recipient of best ' Organic Farming Award' from the government of Maharashtra in 2004
2. Former member of the Cotton Advisory Board of India. (2001 -2003)
3. Member of Cotton Development Society of India.

Very recently he has been appointed as a member of the "Consortium Advisory Committee" (CAC) by Central Institute for Research on Cotton Technology for the project, "A value chain for cotton fibre, seed and stalks: An innovation for higher economic returns to farmers and allied stakeholders" (proponent: CIRCOT, Mumbai)

What's more, Omprakash Mor was the first to obtain the organic certification seal by an international agency for the cotton production programme in India. His vast farming experiences in agro climatically challenged areas have made him a farmer's true guide.

Being farmer first, he always stood for the betterment of the socio economic development of farmers. This encouraged him to go for fair-trade audit and certification programmes for the organic project.
