Organic agriculture is a production system that sustains the health of soil, ecosystem and people. It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and biological cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than the use of synthetic inputs with adverse effects. Organic agriculture combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the environment and promote fair relationships and a good quality life for all involved. All over the world, standards are developed by different countries for organic production to monitor and control organic trade. The choice of the most appropriate organic certification standard depends mainly on the final market of the organic product. The products must be certified based on those standards required by the importing countries in order to market them as “organic”. INDOCERT organic crop production certification services will provide you with a reliable and cost effective certification to facilitate the strategic positioning of your organic products in the global organic markets. The client opting for organic certification in crop production has two options: They can either go for individual certification or in case if a group of farmers are interested in certification, you can apply for grower group certification.
