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 'USDA organic'. TNV Certification

the stability of the plant population, or the ecosystem is not threatened
