Organic farming: 

Agriculture that relies on techniques such as crop rotation, green manure, compost, and biological pest control.

Organic agriculture has gained international recognition as a valid alternative to conventional food production. The demand for organic food products has recently increased in the U.S. and worldwide. The production of organic crops in the Southeastern U.S., including Tennessee, presents various challenges, including weed management which is perhaps the most challenging.
