FLAVOURSOME FRUIT, VIGOROUS VEGETABLES, WITH THE BUD LABEL
"WITH NATURE - NOT AGAINST IT"
Organic fruit and vegetables are amongst the most popular but also the most demanding products of organic farming. Fruit and vegetables are heavily exposed to the effects of the weather. Organic farmers cannot protect their produce against bad conditions with pesticides, fungicides or chemical fertilizers. Producing a successful crop means working closely with nature, relying on good observation skills and a thorough knowledge of cultivation techniques. Without chemicals, it takes know-how, experience and of course 'green fingers' to supply the external quality that consumers expect.
MUCH WORK DONE BY HAND - HIGHER PRICES
Weeds are controlled mechanically in organic farming, which means that the farmer has to weed the crops by hand in most cases. Other mechanical methods used are burning, hoeing, brushing and combing.
