ORGANIC CROP FARMING

ORGANIC CROP FARMING

ORGANIC CROP FARMINGAccording to the definition by the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM), “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 farming belongs to the natural farming scheme, which includes many versions (systems). The concept of organic production lies in complete freedom from using GMOs, antibiotics, chemical pesticides and mineral fertilizers. This entails a greater biological activity of soil, renewal of the nutrient balance, enhanced soil regeneration properties, normalized behavior of living organisms and a faster humus build-up, thus resulting in a better crop yield.

The output of an organic farming process is an environmentally safe product free from GMOs and food-alien chemical elements. The idea of organic farming is popular in many countries over the globe, including Ukraine.

The task of our team of professional is to grow the crops on the grounds where it is prohibited to use any toxic chemicals to fight weeds, pests and crop deceases, as well as to use any synthesized mineral fertilizers; where, instead, we apply, mostly, natural preparations, and have only organic fertilizers used to nourish the soil and plants. Moreover, it is strictly forbidden to use any genetically modified organisms, which are harmful for human health and environment.

By introducing the organic crop farming technologies, BIOFARM ORGANIC makes use of the practices of crop rotation, green manuring (sideration), pest biological control (using bio-pesticides) and soil fertility biological control (application of microbial fertilizers), as well as no-tillage farming, mulching and composting. Our organic production is based on the principles of permanent agriculture (permaculture), biodynamic agriculture and natural agriculture.

Organic crop farming is the first step to a happier and healthier future.
