Organic farming is free from chemical pesticides and stressful fertilizers for at least three years. Production takes place with groundwater and is as energy efficient as possible. In addition to being environmentally friendly, organic cotton is generally of higher quality than conventionally grown cotton.
The cultivation is based on local and renewable resources. Corn, for example, can be grown between the cotton crops and between the rows of cotton. In this way, the soil retains its fertility better and insect infestation is made more difficult.
Supplementary fertilization takes place with organic manure from cows, chickens, other farm animals, and composting. Insect traps and distracting odor traps are used instead of chemical pesticides. In the fight against pests, it has also been shown to be effective in making cultivated land attractive to the pests' predators such as spiders, wasps, and ants.
