Organic Farming

Fertoz believes there are many advantages and benefits of organic farming, but first it’d important to understand what organic farming is. OMAFRA provides great insight into the topic:

“Organic production is a holistic system designed to optimize the productivity and fitness of diverse communities within the agro-ecosystem, including soil organisms, plants, livestock and people. The principal goal of organic production is to develop enterprises that are sustainable and harmonious with the environment.

The general principles of organic production, from the Canadian Organic Standards (2006), include the following:

  • protect the environment, minimize soil degradation and erosion, decrease pollution, optimize biological productivity and promote a sound state of health
  • maintain long-term soil fertility by optimizing conditions for biological activity within the soil
  • maintain biological diversity within the system
  • recycle materials and resources to the greatest extent possible within the enterprise
  • provide attentive care that promotes the health and meets the behavioural needs of livestock
  • prepare organic products, emphasizing careful processing, and handling methods to maintain the organic integrity and vital qualities of the products at all stages of production
  • rely on renewable resources in locally organized agricultural systems

Organic farming presents many challenges. Some crops are more challenging than others to grow organically; however, nearly every commodity can be produced organically.” [1]

Fertoz honors the many relationships we have with farmers who utilize our natural phosphate farming products. The core of what we do, can affect the livelihood of those using our products for their organic farming process. Therefore, we commit to ensuing the products we produce foster the growth and output farmers hope to see from their organic farming efforts.

– Organic Farming Benefits –

Organic farming has many advantages, but the core of this lifestyle is nicely outlined by OMAFRA: “The main reasons farmers state for wanting to farm organically are their concerns for the environment and about working with agricultural chemicals in conventional farming systems. There is also an issue with the amount of energy used in agriculture, since many farm chemicals require energy intensive manufacturing processes that rely heavily on fossil fuels. Organic farmers find their method of farming to be profitable and personally rewarding.” [2]

Our mission is to contribute to this concept by supplying reliable, quality, organic fertilizer products. Get in touch with an expert today!
