The international Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM) defines it as “a production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people. It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than the use of inputs with adverse effects. Organic agriculture combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the shared environment and promote their relationships and a good quality of life for all involved.”
What does it mean?
It is a holistic production taking care of the health of plants, soils, the ecosystems, the farmers and the consumers.
It avoids the use of chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers in the production process.
The production is based on tradition and science.
Most important, it is good for your health and the environment.
