Our Mission RDS Products Shop Online Model Gallery Go Organic
Organic farmers use biologically-based (rather than chemically-dependent) growing systems to raise cotton crops. Organic farming starts with the soil. Compost, frequent crop rotations and cover crop strategies replace synthetic fertilizers to keep soil healthy and productive. Weeds are controlled by innovative farm machinery, hand labor or flame devices rather than herbicide applications. Rather than attempting to eradicate all insects with chemicals, organic farmers cultivate a diversity of natural enemies which prey on insect pests, and lure pests away from the cotton by planting trap crops. Insect pests can be effectively kept in balance with the well-timed introduction of beneficial insects to fields. Organic cotton growers shut off water early, and apply certified materials to promote cotton ball opening and leaf dropping, readying the fibers for harvest.
