Organic cotton uses no chemicals, no synthetic fertilisers and less water. Pests are controlled by beneficial insects, biodiversity is encouraged and the soil is enriched and replenished through the use of organic fertilisers and crop rotations. This regular rotation provides a secondary cash crop as well as food for the farmers and local communities.
