WHAT IS ORGANIC FARMING?
In order to re-establish previously damaged or destroyed ecological balance in nature, organic farming aims to correct unwanted results of wrong production practices by using biological methods to control pests and diseases, to improve soil fertility, to contain environment and human friendly production systems, to ban the use of synthetic and chemical fertilizer and pesticides while encouraging organic and green fertilizing, crop rotation and soil conservation. It is a production method where each stage from production to consumption is controlled and the product obtained is documented with a certificate.
Organic farming contains human and environment friendly production systems that aim re-ordering previously destroyed ecological balance in nature as results of wrong production practices.
