Definition of Organic agriculture

Organic agriculture is a system of farming that is governed by ecosystem management and is often considered synonymous with sustainable agriculture. It is also strictly governed by USDA standards, which include restrictions on practices such as use of synthetic fertilizers and genetically modified seeds and animal feed. Organic certification can improve consumer confidence but may also be considered a regulatory and financial burden on small-scale sustainable producers.
