Organic Agriculture

Organic farming is a form of agriculture that developed from a desire to improve soil quality and the environment, and from a strong rejection of the use of synthetic chemicals and fertilizers in agriculture. It relies on naturally-sourced fertilizers such as compost, manure, green manure, and bone meal and places emphasis on techniques such as crop rotation, companion planting. Biological pest control, mixed cropping and fostering natural insect predators are encouraged. Generally organic standards are designed to allow the use of natural substances while prohibiting or strictly limiting synthetic substances. (Wikipedia)
