EMP Organic Cotton
Organic Cotton certification guarantees the ecological cultivation of the fibre.Organic cotton is produced and harvested according to the guidelines of organic farming.The use ofgenetically modified seeds is prohibited.In contrast to conventional cotton cultivation, the use of chemical pesticides and fertilisers is prohibited.To maintain and improve natural soil fertility, manure and compost are used. To keep insects away, the fields are moved with other plants to keep the pests away. For example, sunflowers are planted around the cotton fields in West Africa. These attract pests such as the cotton capsule beetle and thus prevent infestation of the cotton plants. In addition, the farmers practice crop rotation. This means that cotton is grown in alternation with other crops such as tomatoes or peppers, etc. This also serves to care for the soil and prevents the spread of pests and diseases.
