What is Organic Rice?
Organic rice is rice that certified by an independent body, to have been grown and processed according to set “organic” standards.
While there is no single definition for “organic”, most definitions share common elements. For example, “organic” as applied to most field crops generally means that:
No synthetic or artificial chemical pesticides and fertilizers have been used.
Soil fertility is maintained through “natural” processes such as growing cover crops and/or the application of composted manure and plant wastes.
Crops are rotated in fields to avoid growing the same crop year after year in the same field.
Alternate (non-chemical forms) of pest control are used to manage insects, diseases, and weeds e.g beneficial insects to prey on pests, mulches to suppress weeds, etc.
