Organic farming methods combine scientific knowledge of ecology and modern technology with traditional farming practices based on naturally occurring biological processes. While conventional agriculture uses synthetic pesticides and water-soluble synthetically purified fertilizers, organic farmers are restricted by regulations to using natural pesticides and fertilizers.

Organic farming Methods use the natural environment to enhance agricultural productivity: natural insect predators are encouraged, crops are rotated to confuse pests and renew soil. Organic farmers are careful in their selection of plant breeds, and organic researchers produce hardier plants through plant breeding rather than genetic engineering.

Some of the aspects of farming using organic methods is: crop rotation, organic pest control and using clean healthy water and nutrients.
