Organic Agriculture and the environment
The common observation that "Planet earth is not inherited from our parents, but is borrowed from our children" led us to the need for a different way of farming.
Land cultivation according to the principles of organic agriculture is the core basic sustainable development is based upon. Sustainable development refers to the economic development that is planned and implemented while primarily taking into account the protection of the environment.
Since 1991, the European Union (EU) has adopted very strict policy for organic agriculture. The application of EU’s standards is achieved through EU regulations regarding organic agricultural products production and labeling, as well as the certification of those who manage to meet these strict rules.
Principles of Organic Agriculture
Organic agriculture is a method of farming that minimizes or completely avoids the use of synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, plant growth regulators, hormones and additives.
It is based on the prevention rather than the treatment of a problem; it uses natural substances against pests and parasites.
