A workable model of upscaling of organic agriculture in drylands has been developed. The traditional default organic system have been improved with modern ecotechnologies. Outcome in term of soil and biodiversity improvement, resilience in crops to climate change are visible that convince farmers for adoption. Continuous customised advice further enhances adoption. This approach can be the way to conserve time tested and ecofriendly heritage agriculture that is otherwise vanishihg due to intensive chemical agriculture.
