Definition Of Organic Agriculture


Organic Agriculture Is A System Of Agricultural Production That Is Subject To A System Of Control And Inspection According To The Certification Programs Prepared On The Basis Of Clear And Specific Legal Legislation And Includes The Control Of All Stages Of The Production Chain And Includes Practices That Ensure The Acquisition Of A High-Quality Product While Conserving Natural Resources And Environmental.. 


According To IFOAM, Organic Agriculture Encompasses All Agricultural Systems That Support The Environmentally, Socially And Economically Correct Production Of Agricultural Products. These Systems Depend On Soil Fertility And Local Resources, Which Are Key To Successful Production.

Organic Agriculture Aims To Respect The Natural Capacity Of Plants, Animals And Nature.

Organic Farming Significantly Reduces External Inputs By Refraining From The Use Of Fertilizers, Pesticides And Manufactured Chemical Medicines. Instead, It Allows For Effective Laws Of Nature To Increase Agricultural Production And To Resist Diseases And Pests.

Organic Agriculture Is Not Only A Method Of Agriculture Where Artificial Fertilizers Are Not Used, And It Is Not A Method That Our Ancestors Used To Do, But A System That Requires Long-Term Planning Based On Accumulated Knowledge And Experience..
