“Organic or biological farming can be defined as any production that avoids or excludes the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilisers, and instead relies upon the use of sustainable techniques such as crop rotations, naturally sourced fertilisers and biological pest controls to enhance the natural fertility of a farm” (Reganold, 1988).”
An organic approach to functional biodiversity, plant breeding, crop rotation, intercropping, soil fertility, crop diversification, weed and pest control are all improvements that are mainly due to improvements in soil health, which is a direct response to the removal of harmful pesticides and chemicals from the system which are detrimental to soil biota. This soil biota is paramount within an agricultural system as it drives nutrient cycling, the maintenance and improvement of soil physical conditions, and is involved in a variety of soil chemical processes.
