Some are convinced that organic farming and, resulting from that, organic food should be called conventional since mankind has been growing food on an organic way for centuries. Now organic stands for ecologically based farming. It is defined by ecological and proactive procedures that maintain and enhance soil fertility, prevent soil erosion, promote and enhance biological diversity. It also aims to minimize risk to both animal as human health and natural resources.
Organic products are therefore not just products with no pesticide residues but organic products are the result of a specific way of producing.
For organic produce a formal legislation is not into place in the EU. The EU is working on a formal legislation but until today it is not official.
For organic produce, Primoris offers several methods that are very well suited for organic produce and where the reporting limits of plant protection products are compliant to the rules for organic produce.
Regarding residue analysis on organic produce, Primoris is approved by the German "Bundesverband Naturkost Naturwaren" and the Dutch organisation BIOKAP.
