Production Techniques

Ecological agriculture is based on two fundamental principles: the production of natural food, free from chemical and toxic substances, and the conservation of the environment in the production areas. To fulfil these principles, different techniques are applied


There are established natural methods that can be applied to ecological agriculture. The objective is to preserve the fertility and the biological activity of the soil.

Crop rotation

Alternate crop rotation is a strategy to conserve and allow the recovery of the levels of natural nutrients of the soil, in addition to avoiding problems with pesticides.

Crop associations
