PEST CONTROL AND FERTILIZATION

Organic fertilization methods include no synthetic fertilizers or chemical drugs. Instead, following organic practices are applied: use of organic and green manure, beneficial parasites and predators, crop rotation, preserving soil fertility, increasing plant resistance.

At Rani Farm, organic solid and liquid animal manure are dried in the sun, and the soil is prepared for organic agriculture through the use of fishmeal and other advice from consultants. No chemical insecticides, fungicides or herbicides are used. Instead, natural plant extracts and their products are used to increase plant and soil fertility. Additional techniques are applied for improving soil structure and supporting the biological life. Burning processes which decreases the fertility and destroys the upper layer soil is not preferred.
