Introduction to Organic Agricultural Practices book
Organic agriculture by definition is referred to as a "natural production management system which promotes and enhances biodiversity, soil biological activities and biological cycles." The production is based on minimal use of off-farm inputs and good management practices that restore, maintain, or enhance ecological harmony. The main goal of organic agriculture is to optimize productivity of interdependent communities of soil life, plants, animals and people with the use of synthetic elements. The term "organic", as defined by law, is "natural" and "eco-friendly". Most "natural" products do not contain synthetic products, but may have been produced conventionally (using synthetic substances).
