Fertilisation approach for growing organic vegetables:
To grow organic vegetables you need to focus on producing healthy, nutritious and safe produce without the use of chemical fertilisers and chemical pesticides, fungicides and herbicides.
This approach has become popular due to the increasing awareness of the negative impact that chemical fertilisers have on the environment and the end consumer, as well as the benefits of organically grown products.
One of the key aspects of organic farming is soil health, and therefore organic farmers focus on restoring and maintaining the soil’s natural health. This is achieved by using crop rotation, implementing cover crops and using organic material such as compost and organic plant nutrients. Examples of organic fertilisers are; Atlantic Fertilisers’ Bio Ganic, Bio Rock and Bio Ocean as well as biostimulants such as Ocean Nutrition (Fish hydrolysate) and BioKelp X5. These products not only enrich the soil, but also feed the micro-life and stimulate fine root development which in turn promotes the absorption of nutrients and healthy plant development.
Organic farming is not just an approach to agriculture. It is rather a way of life or philosophy that focuses on restoring and maintaining the soil’s natural health, by using a more natural approach to promote soil life.
This approach can lead to the production of healthy, safe and nutritious produce, whilst having a positive impact on the environment.

Here are some daily activities you can follow to support an organic vegetable farmer:
- Buy organic produce: The most direct way to support an organic vegetable farmer is to buy their produce. Look for local farmers’ markets or grocery stores that carry organic produce from nearby farms.
- Spread the word: Tell your friends, family and colleagues about the benefits of organic farming and encourage them to buy organic products too. Word of mouth is a powerful tool to promote organic agriculture.
- Attend farm events: Many organic vegetable farmers host events such as farm tours, cooking classes and community gatherings. Attend these events to learn more about the importance of organic farming and this way you can also show your support for the farmer. You can also email our office at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on which fertilisers to use when growing your own.
By supporting organic vegetable farmers, you are helping to protect the environment and ensure that healthy, nutritious food is available.
