The USDA National Organic Program (NOP) defines organic as follows: Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled "organic," a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified, too.

What does the USDA Organic seal mean? The USDA Organic seal assures consumers of the quality and integrity of organic products. Organic-certified operations must have an organic system plan and records that verify compliance with that plan. Operators are inspected annually in addition there are random checks to assure standards are being met.

How does a farmer go about converting land to organic status? Converting land to organic status is a three-year process. There is a two-year conversion process consisting of building up the fertility of the land. Produce grown in the first year cannot be stated as organic. In the second year produce may be stated as “In Conversion”. It is not until the third year that produce may be stated as fully organic. Soil and natural fertility building are important parts of organic farming.

Exactly what do the terms “organic food” and “organic farming” mean? Organic food refers to produce that has been grown without the use of artificial fertilizers, pesticides and other chemicals or genetically modified organisms and to the maximum extent feasible relies upon crop rotations, crop residues, animal manures, off-farm organic waste, mineral grade rock additives and biological system of nutrient mobilization and plant protection. When applied to agriculture, the term “organic” means that farm production based upon the philosophy of working in harmony with nature. Organic farming practices promote biodiversity, enhance ecological balance and keep our earth in good health.

Can anyone just claim to be an organic producer? Definitely not. Organic is the only system of farming in the India which must meet legal requirements to use the name. Anyone calling their product organic must be inspected and certified by a body. When they are licensed, organic products must show a certification number on the label.
