Organic Food and Sustainable Agriculture

Organic farming is a form of agriculture in which agricultural land is cultivated without the use of artificial fertilizers, or artificial pesticides, growth regulators and livestock feed additives. Organic farming excludes or strictly limits the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and livestock feed additives.

Sustainable agriculture is the practice of farming using principles of ecology. Unlike organic agriculture, sustainable agriculture focuses on the ability of providing food on the long-term. As such, besides artificial fertilizers, and pesticides .it also does not allow the use of agricultural machines running on non-renewable resources.
