Organic crop management
The basis of organic crop production is a healthy, biologically active soil, with good organic matter reserves, that can supply nutrients for the production of grass, crops and vegetables. This involves providing the soil with materials that can be broken down by soil microorganisms to release crop nutrients. In practice this involves developing cropping, grazing and silage rotations that do not over-exploit soil nutrient reserves, plus the managed use of manures, thus maintaining soil fertility.
