Organic cotton is usually rain-fed, not irrigated, so it uses a lot less water. It’s grown without the use of toxic pesticides and insecticides. Farmers use composted manures and cover-crops to replace synthetic fertilisers. Innovative weeding strategies are used instead of herbicides. Beneficial insects and trap-crops are used to control pests. Some farmers use natural pesticides such as chilli – just like in our wildflower Seedballs!
