Organic Rice is rice that is certified by an independent body, to have been grown and processed according to set organic standards. While there is no single definition for organic, most definitions share common elements. For example, organic as applied to most field crops generally means that

- No synthetic or artificial chemical pesticides and fertilizers have been used,
- Soil fertility is maintained through natural processes such as growing cover crops and/or the application of composted manure and plant wastes.
- Crops are rotated in fields to avoid growing the same crop year after year in the same field.
- Alternate (non-chemical forms) of pest control are used to manage insects, diseases and weeds e.g., beneficial insects to prey on pests, mulches to suppress weeds, etc.

Why should I grow organic rice?

- You may need to develop and submit annual plans showing that you will meet the production and processing requirements of the certifying body
- You can only be certified organic if your produce is grown on land, which has been free of prohibited substances (e.g., artificial chemical pesticides and fertilizers) for three years prior to certification.
