In controlled biological agricultural systems cotton is being cultivated following defined standards.
Biologic cotton production does not use synthetic fertilizers or cultivate genetically modified species. That protects the health of humans as well as of useful animals, the land and the diversity of the naturally growing cotton plants.
In order to prevent a single- edge use of the land, different fruits are cultivated in changing order. The cultivation in change with food plants such as corn favours not only a more rapid recovery of the land, it also prevents cotton parasites from proliferating. Intercropping with peanuts for example effects that more insectivorous animals find breeding possibilities and as a consequence it prevents pests from taking over.
Instead of chemical fertilizers bio farmers use agricultural waste such as for example cow dung or compost. Thereby the land is protected and high costs for chemical fertilizers are saved and the high-quality cotton receives better prices on the market.
