Disinfect in a biological way
When you decide to grow an urban garden in an ecological way, you necessarily have to use insecticide substances that do not contain chemicals. Many businesses born under this prerogative sell natural compounds precisely to keep the eco system alive and to comply with the environmental impact. Certainly the chemicals are much more effective but they inevitably kill those good little insects such as the ladybug and are then toxic to children and pets. The important thing for those who cultivate a vegetable garden both on their home balcony and in a small plot of land, is to observe the same precise rules as those who cultivate organically, excluding synthetic chemicals and to fight pests, make use of compounds of origin. natural and low environmental impact. Organic production today is governed by EC regulation 834/07 and applies to all those products that contain ingredients of vegetable origin.
So, if we want to rely on this system that the large companies producing organic products use, we must create, even if in a small way, the so-called "biological oases".
How large organic farms fight pests
First of all, besides realizing their structure in areas far from factories and highways that could contaminate crops, large farms use the biological insecticides that fight parasites, with the use of medicinal herbs in the form of macerated or infusions.
This practice, together with the use of organic fertilizers and natural fertilizers such as manure from farmed animal stables, ensure that these companies conserve and transform their products, using a method that does not require the use of products. chemical.
Of course, all of this is certified before the vegetables arrive on the tables of consumers, through legally recognized organisms.
As for pesticides, in fact, according to current legislation, 0.9% contamination is allowed.
