Overview

Organic agricultural techniques blend scientific knowledge of environmental science and modern technology with traditional agricultural practices based on naturally happening biological processes. Organic agricultural techniques are examined in the field of agro ecology. Although conventional agriculture utilizes synthetic pesticides and water-soluble synthetically purified fertilizers, organic farmers are limited by regulations to utilizing natural pesticides and plant food.


The chief techniques of organic agricultural include crop rotation, green manures and compost, biologic pest control, and mechanical cultivation. These measures utilize the natural surroundings to enhance agricultural productivity: legumes are set to fix nitrogen into the soil, natural insect predators are promoted, crops are rotated to confound pests and regenerate soil, and innate materials like potassium bicarbonate and mulches are utilized to check disease and weeds. Sturdier plants are generated through plant breeding instead of genetic engineering.
