Define Organic
"Organic" refers to the way agricultural products - including foods and fibers such as cotton - are grown and processed.

The word "organic" on the label stands for a commitment to an agriculture which strives for a balance with nature, using methods and materials which are of low impact to the environment. Organic Production Systems: - Replenish and maintain soil fertility: - Eliminate the use of toxic and persistent chemical pesticides and fertilizers; - Build a biologically diverse agriculture.' Organic foods are minimally processed to maintain the integrity of the food without artificial ingredients, preservatives or irradiation.
