In an ancient India, the whole agricultural system was being practiced using organic techniques, and it lasted for almost thousands of years. For which animal waste (e.g. composted dungs, urine etc.), composted plants waste and other wastages were being used as fertilizer.

In mid 1970s, the organic farming movement in India started for the Industrialization of Agriculture. And before that all the traditional farming was known as Organic Farming due to less usage of pesticide and toxins. For an example, Forest Gardening, an organic food production system, counted as one of the world’s oldest organic farming and organic food producing system.

At Geo-Fresh, Organic Farming doesn’t mean it is a return to the older methods our ancestors had but it is something what we have learned over several millennia.

Organic foods refer to agricultural products that are grown and processed without the use of fertilizers, growth regulators, livestock feeds, pesticides, additives, bio-engineered genes (GMOs). Organic farming is controlled by regulations which differ from country to country. The main concept of organic farming is to grow food without the use of synthetic materials or genetically modified crops.

According to these Organic standards, all the organic operations must demonstrate that they are protecting natural resources, conserving biodiversity, and using only approved substances.

Many studies have shown that there is no such difference of taste in organic food and conventional food but the well-designed studies have researched and came to a conclusion like people favor the taste of organic food more, over conventional food. Because, the organic food has more antioxidants and other vitamins into it, which makes it tastier and better.

And nowadays chefs do prefer to use organic food over conventional food not only for better taste but for better health benefits too.

Organic produce:

Conventionally-grown produce:

Grown with natural fertilizers (manure, compost).

Grown with synthetic chemical fertilizers, pesticides etc.

Weeds are controlled naturally (crop rotation, hand weeding, mulching, and tilling).

Weeds are controlled with chemical herbicides.

Pests are controlled using natural methods (birds, insects, trap crops) and naturally-derived herbal pesticides.

Pests are controlled with synthetic pesticides

Organic food virtually eliminates the risk of chemical residues but this is not its main advantage over conventional products. Strict avoidance of all chemicals in all stages of production makes organic food much more environmentally friendly because the use of all natural production methods eliminates the risk of soil and underwater contamination, and helps preserve biodiversity and wildlife both of which have been seriously affected by the human actions, primarily urbanization and intensive agriculture.

Organic farming also improves animal welfare because organic farms are required to keep their animals in certain environment and provide them access to sunlight and outdoors, for instance. In the end, organic food helps reduce the carbon dioxide emissions and fight the global climate change because it is mostly sold locally.

Organic products are usually priced more compared to the conventional products due to the following reasons,

  1. Less chemical means more labor work
  2. Cost of Bio fertilizer for organic farming
  3. Crop Rotation
  4. Post-harvest handling cost
  5. Organic Certification
  6. Organic food grows slowly
