During a big part of human history, agriculture can be dermined as organic. In organic production, the use of conventional non-organic pesticides, insecticides and herbicides is strictly prohibited. If animals are included in the program for organic production, they must be reared without the routine use of antibiotics and without the use of growth hormones. In most countries, organic products can not be genetically modified.
To achieve this, organic farming relies on a set of objectives, principles and practices designed to minimize human impact on the environment and ensure the functioning of the farming system in the most natural, so close to nature way.
Typical practices of organic farming are:
• Extensive use of the "crop-changing as a prerequisite for effective use of available agricultural resources.
• Very strict restrictions on the use of pesticides and fertilizers, antibiotics for animals, food additives, processing aids in food processing, and other additives of this type.
• Absolute ban on the use of genetically modified organisms
• Use the resources on-site, such as manure to enrich the soil or feed produced at the farm.

Respect for nature.

For organic farmers, fertile soil and environmental factors are essential for the survival of humans and animals. Organic producers have shown their attitude to the environment by:
• Responsible use of energy and natural resources
• Maintain biodiversity
• Maintenance of local ecological balances
• Improve soil fertility
• Improving water quality
