Organic agriculture includes agricultural systems that promote the environmentally, socially and economically sound production of food and fibres.
By respecting the natural capacity of plants, animals and local conditions it aims to optimise quality in all aspects of agriculture and the environment. By refraining from use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and pharmaceuticals, organic agriculture dramatically reduces the external inputs to agriculture. High production and healthy crops are ensured by crop rotations, intercropping, proper varieties, biological pest control, nutrient recycling and other measures.
