Organic farms follow a strict set of rules dealing with what they can and cannot use in regard to fertilizers, pesticides, etc. http://www.sarep.ucdavis.edu/Organic/complia…nceguide/faq.htm
Non-genetically modified, non-synthetic, and on-site inputs are ways in which an organic farm differs from a conventional farm. The organic farmer depends upon local resources… and follows a year-round schedule of biological, botanical, cultivational, and mechanical controls which admit nothing subjected to genetic alteration or laboratory manufacture.
Organic farming does not use any manufactured chemicals in the production of crops or animals; only approved natural substances are used, such as manure for fertilizer and na…turally-occurring substances for pest control and weed control. Inorganic farming uses manufactured chemical products as fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.. In raising animals for milk production, egg production or as food, some organic farmers do not use antibiotics or hormones at all. Most organic farmers do not use hormones at all, and use antibiotics only to treat an animal known to be infected with a treatable disease. Inorganic farmers often use antibiotics even though no disease is present, as a preventative; they also use certain antibiotics and hormones which they believe will increase the rate and amount of growth or production.. Some farms use a mix of organic and inorganic practices.. In the USA at this time, the distinction between organic and inorganic practices is regulated only by individual states and not by the federal government.. "Organic Farming" is a new trend to raise animals and crops without using man made chemicals such as pesticides, anti-biotics and fertilizers as some examples. This means that the food is possibly better for you and is raised in a more ecologically friendly manner. However, crop yields are lower and therefore, there is less product. This means the product is more expensive because the supply is lower.. Not all but a lot of farmers mix inorganic and organic things togther!
Local resources, natural inputs, and on-site activities are the differences between organic and non-organic farming. An organic farm does not employ chemical, genetically modi…fied or non-synthetic controls or products to improve yields and prolong shelf life. It focuses upon the health of the soil and of soil food web members over artificially pleasing appearances and vast quantities of edibles and ornamentals.
An organic farm (in the United States) is one that follows practices as implemented by the National Organic Program (NOP) see: http://www.ams.usda.gov/AMSv1.0/ams.fetchTemplat…eData.do?template=TemplateA&navID=NationalOrganicProgram&leftNav=NationalOrganicProgram&page=NOPNationalOrganicProgramHome&acct=nop) You may not use prohibitated materials, you must receive certification by a certifying agent, you must have an organic plan and maintain appropriate records. By meeting this standards your products may desplay the USDA organic seal. If you sell less than $5,000 annually in product, you do not need to be certified. If you follow all of the organic practices as outlined in the NOP you may label your product "organic" but you cannot display the USDA organic seal. Organic farms use no to very little chemicals. A non-organic farm uses chemicals and pesticides. Organic food is much healthier on the body and more natural!
Chemical farming is done by using chemical pesticides, fungicides and by using artificial fertilizers which not only harms plants but can also pollute the surrounding environm…ent, if put in excess. Also if these chemicals are used over a land for a long time the land starts losing all its minerals and other useful stuffs hence leaving the land useless. While organic farming is done with minimum use or no use of chemicals. In this type of farming, manure and natural fertilizers are used which are biodegradable and thus do not pollute the environment. Also, it has an advantage over land that land is always fertile.
organic farming is where they don't use any chemicals as intensive farming does. . a better explanation: organic farming is where the farm uses is more environmentally frien…dly, but it makes a smaller yield is more expensive and takes up more space to make crops. intensive farming is better for cheaper food, more yield made, not that good for environment but don't need many workers or space.
Local farming is that which is done within a reasonably close distance to the market in which it will be sold. In the US, this is generally within 50 miles. Organic farming is… that which is done in a manner which does not use chemical or unnatural fertilizers and pesticides. In the US, any crop labeled "certified organic" is very strictly controlled regarding the methods and materials used to produce it.
Emus are farmed for emu oil, which can be used for: . arthritis . general skin care . beauty treatments . skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema . muscle cramps . … first aid for minor irritations and burns . Emus are also farmed for their feathers, and emu leather.
Generally speaking, the main difference is in the amount of laborinvolved. Organic farming typically takes more labor to produce thesame kind of crop as in intensive farming, …due to the lack ofindustrially-produced pesticides and fertilizers. While there areorganic pesticides and fertilizers, there is not the wide varietyand efficacy of products as for intensive farming. So hand labormust be used to counter the effects of pests, and to apply thelarger volumes of organic fertilizer. The two methods are not exclusive. Vegetable farming for instanceis a form of intensive farming, regardless if it's organic orconventional farming. Greenhouse farming even more so, as you willgrow several crops on the same plot within the year. Some partisans of organic farming argue that philosophically, greenhouses are too artificial, requiring extra heating and lighting, toqualify as organic, but organic farming is a business, and if afarmer can beat the competition by having its produce on the marketearlier in the season, it helps sustain the farm and organicfarming, and it also reduces importations from sunnier countries,say from Spain if you farm in France, which is also a goal oforganic farming (local products).
From Wikipedia: Biodynamic agriculture is a method of organic farming that treats farms as unified and individual organisms, emphasizing balancing the holistic developmen…t and interrelationship of the soil, plants, animals as a self-nourishing system without external inputs insofar as this is possible given the loss of nutrients due to the export of food. Regarded by some as the first modern ecological farming system and one of the most sustainable, biodynamic farming has much in common with other organic approaches, such as emphasizing the use of manures and composts and excluding of the use of artificial chemicals on soil and plants. Methods unique to the biodynamic approach include the use of fermented herbal and mineral preparations as compost additives and field sprays and the use of an astronomical sowing and planting calendar. Biodynamics originated out of the work of Rudolf Steiner, the founder of the spiritual philosophy anthroposophy.
theres so much difference that its impossible to list them
Organic Farming-Organic farming is a kind of farming that relies on techniques such as crop rostation etc. .
Organic farming is the form of agriculture that relies on techniques such as crop rotation, green manure, compost and biological pest control to maintain soil productivity an…d control pests on afarm. Organic farming excludes or strictly limits the use of manufactured fertilizers, pesticides(which include herbicides, insecticides and fungicides), plant growth regulators such ashormones, livestock antibiotics, food additives, and genetically modified organisms. Industrial farming or conventional farming is a form of modern farming that refers to the industrialized production of livestock,poultry, fish, and crops. The methods of industrial agriculture are technoscientific, economic, and political. They include innovation in agricultural machinery and farming methods, genetic technology, techniques for achieving economies of scale in production, the creation of new markets for consumption, the application ofpatent protection to genetic information, and global trade. These methods are widespread in developed nations and increasingly prevalent worldwide. Most of the meat, dairy, eggs, fruits, and vegetables available in supermarkets are produced using these methods of industrial agriculture.
There are a couple key differences between raising organically grown livestock and raising them in a factory farm system. One of the most important differences is the food th…e animals are served throughout their lives. The definition of organic farming is to grow plants and livestock without them having been fed or treated by anything containing chemical additives. In contrast, the idea of factory farming is to produce a large yield of animals in as short of time (and with as much meat on them) as possible. Therefore, factory farms rely heavily on feed that has been modified chemically to produce a large quantity of "beefy" livestock in a hurry. The second biggest difference is the living condition in which most animals are raised. Factory farms are notorious for being small, dark and desperately overcrowded spaces that animals have barely any room to move in. Some are even kept in cages for the entire duration of their life. With organic farming practices generally comes the idea of animals being "free range". This is an important addition to the "organic seal" because it lets consumers know that the animals were raised in a humane way, with more room for movement, grazing and comfort. However, it should be noted that not all organic farms have free range practices as living conditions don't impact the livestock's consumption of chemicals or additives.
Organic foods are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizersand pesticides. Intensive farming foods may or may not be grownusing synthetic fertilizers and pesiticides.
A non organic farm uses synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Anorganic farm does not. Instead, it uses compost and other organicmatter to add nutrients to the soil, and other… means to controlweeds and pests, such as inter-planting plants that naturally repelinsects with their crops.
