Our organic agriculturists produce products using methods that preserve the environment and strictly avoid synthetic materials, such as pesticides and antibiotics. These Organic farmers, and food processors follow a defined set of standards to produce organic food and fibre.
These standards cover the product from farm to table, including soil and water quality, pest control, livestock practices, and rules for food additives.
Overall, Punjab Agro Industry oversees organic farmers with Scitra AgrOrganics to make sure that organic food is produced with accurate organic methods. Each year, organic farmers update a farm plan and complete an inspection of soil and product testing to confirm that their practices match global records. These farmers correct all the issues to continue with their certification and instead of using artificial chemical fertilizers or pesticides to boost yields they uses organic farming techniques, mostly natural methods to achieve the same ends.
