. Organic farmers realize that the soil is a living entity, therefore organic practices feed the soil which in turn feed the plant. Organic farming is a management intensive, not a material intensive, technology; materials are a supplementary tool in a balanced farm management program. Organic farmers attempt to understand and work in harmony with the natural biological systems on the farm, not override them with chemicals (even naturally derived ones). They strive to develop cultural and biological means of crop nutrition and protection that are balanced, sustainable, and resilient.
