What Makes a Product Organic?

Halter Ranch Marcelo PicThere are many guidelines manufacturers must follow to be able to label their products organic. Organic gardening is gardening without the use of synthetic chemicals, pesticides or fertilizers that can be harmful to the soil, people, pets, and the planet.

So, if you’re wanting to start an organic garden, where to begin?

Soil. Choosing the right organic products will help you sustain healthy soil in your garden. This also means using the correct tools and equipment to maintain that quality of the soil. If you’re on a larger scale project, say on a farm, when cropping and harvesting you’ll need to use equipment such as a windrower, telehandler, tractor, fertiliser etc. Simply searching up kubota tractors for sale in your area can get you where you need to be with regards to farming, as well as searching for other equipment, and can help you with maintaining a good quality product. However, with projects on a smaller scale that are in your back garden, you only need little bits and bobs such as a lawn mower, spade, garden trowel, to help keep the project in tip top condition.

Next, make sure you’re using the right organic gardening products: planting mix, garden soil, fertilizer, and mulch. Make sure the products you choose comply with the USDA’s National Organic Program. Just because a product has organic ingredients in it does not mean it complies with the USDA National Organic Program standards.
