Open Farming consists of Bio Farming and Organic Farming.
- Bio-farming is a method of production that means reducing the usage of chemicals. At the same time, it includes the following: crop rotation, crop residues, organic waste, green manure. There is also the use of bioagents for biological pest control.
- Organic farming is an agricultural system that uses fertilizers of organic origin. For example compost manure, green manure, and bone meal and places emphasis on techniques such as crop rotation and companion planting.
Benefits of open farming
- The use of fewer pesticides reduces soil erosion, decreases nitrate seeping into groundwater and surface water, and recycles animal wastes back into the farm.
