Crop Production

Organic agriculture is a whole system approach based upon a set of processes resulting in a sustainable ecosystem, safe food, good nutrition, animal welfare and social justice. It is a production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people. It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than the use of inputs with adverse effects. Organic Agriculture combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the shared environment and promote fair relationships and a good quality of life for all involved. Certification practices include: promotion of biodiversity, choice of disease resistant varieties, conversion periods (An interim period required for the establishment of an organic management system and building of soil fertility), soil and water conservation, prohibition on use of synthetic fertilizers and chemicals and so on.

Wild Collection

Wild collection certification is required whenever wild products are to be marketed as organic. Wild products are derived from a self sustainable growing environment.
Basic principles of  wild collection

  • Only naturally grown plants (without any agricultural interventions)
  • Clearly defined collection area
  • The collection area must not have been treated with any non allowed inputs
  • A good map is needed, it should contain the outer boarders of the collecting area
  • Sustainable Collection: Collection does not endanger  the ecosystem and that the stability of the plant  population, or the ecosystem is not threatened
  • A systematic record of all activities from the collection area to the marketing of the product should be kept for the full traceability

Certification requirementsThe general requirements for organic wild collection complies with National programme for organic production (NPOP), India (Considered equivalent to council regulation (EC) No. 834/2007 and Swiss organic farming ordinance for plant products originating in India and USDA NOP
There is no conversion period as long as the requirements for the organic wild collection are met.

Processing

Processing is modification of raw agricultural products. Handling is selling, processing or packaging agricultural products. Organic processing and handling provides consumers with nutritious, high quality supplies of organic products and organic farmers with a market without compromise to the organic integrity of their products. Processing certification is necessary whenever an organic product is processed in some way or another, and needs to be labeled for marketing as organic. Minimal modification as part of normal on-farm post harvest handling is permitted without processing certification. Minimal modification includes washing, filtering, cleaning, and trimming, bagging, boxing or labeling of produce.
