Crop rotation is a fundamental principle of organic farming: it alone enables the soil to be maintained naturally with no use of pesticides or herbicides. It also provides the organic matter that is indispensable for the balanced soil nutrition needed to grow organic crops with no chemical fertilizers.
It is the guarantee of environmentally friendly and sustainable farming. In our production area, several rotation schemes coexist, depending on the nature of the soils, water availability, and specific climate variables:
Biosud markets only products grown in our area (PACA and Occitanie), and only organic products.
All Biosud rice is produced in the Camargue
and bears the “Camargue Rice” PGI label
A field technician supervises rice crops for effective monitoring and traceability. Our technician also provides a vital link between the rice producer and the rice industry, because organic farming is very demanding. Our field technician organises crop rotation with the producers in a way that satisfies Biosud’s requirements for traceability and can reassure its different clients. Our crop unit makes it possible to create a relationship based on trust between the producer and the storage facility.
