Organic farming is today’s term for “traditional agriculture.” Practiced by humans around the world for thousands of years, organic farming uses centuries-old concepts such as crop rotation, companion planting and composting to grow healthy and nutritious fruits, vegetables. Organic farming is a very pure form of agriculture which utilizes sustainable and natural techniques to enhance the fertility of the farm.

In today’s world, advanced knowledge of natural biological processes is combined with traditional farming practices. Some unique features of organic farming include polyculture (planting multiple crops in the same location), carbon-based fertilizers and natural pest control. Organic farming produces highly nutritious, vitamin-rich crops in an efficient, natural way.

"Organic agriculture is 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 fair relationships and a good quality of life for all involved..."
