Principles of Organic Standards
Organic agriculture is based on holistic production management systems which promote and enhance agro-ecosystem health, including biodiversity, biological cycles, and soil biological activity. Organic agriculture emphasizes the use of management practices in preference to the use of off-farm inputs, taking into account that conditions require locally adapted systems. These goals are met, where possible, through the use of cultural, biological, and mechanical methods, as opposed to using synthetic materials, to fulfill specific functions within the system.
