There are many explanations and definitions for organic agriculture but all converge to state that it is a system that relies on eco-system management rather than external agricultural inputs. It is a system that begins to consider potential environmental and social impacts by eliminating the use of synthetic inputs, such as synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, veterinary drugs, genetically modified seeds and breeds, preservatives, additives and irradiation.
These are replaced with site-specific management practices that maintain and increase long-term soil fertility and prevent pest and diseases Consumer or market-driven organic agriculture – Products are clearly identified through certification and labelling. Consumers take a conscious decision on how their food is produced, processed, handled and marketed. The consumer therefore has a strong influence over organic production.
