  • Organic farming is a modern way of agriculture management, not using any chemical treatments which have negative effects on the environment, human health or animal health. It produces organic foodstuffs, and at the same time enhances the living conditions of animals. It contributes to environmental protection and helps biodiversity to increase. Organic farming does not mean going ‘back’ to traditional (old) methods of farming. Many of the farming methods used in the past are still useful today.

European consumers have led the demand for organic products, particularly in coun- tries such as the Netherlands, Italy, and Austria.

  • Although production costs of organic specialty crops can be higher than conventional production, some organic commodity crops have lower costs of production than the same conventional crops. A recent study of corn and soybean production in Iowa found that organic farms had lower fertilizer and pesticide costs, but higher seed and machinery costs. On the average, the total cost of organic production was slightly lower than that of conventional production.

  • It is important to note that not all non-synthetic materials (natural) are allowable, nor are all synthetic materials excluded from use in organic production. Notable exceptions include insecticidal soap, a synthetic compound that can be used in pest control, and tobacco dust, a natural product that is not permitted. The Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) evaluates materials for use in organic agriculture and publishes their findings in the form of lists of allowable and prohibited inputs.
