By farming organically, you can be assured that your rhubarb is free of chemical pesticides and conventional fertilizers.
Growing organic rhubarb and other vegetables requires you to adapt your gardening methods to be "organic" in nature.
Organic farming is a method of crop and livestock production that includes gardening free of chemical pesticides and conventional fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, antibiotics and growth hormones.
Organic gardening is more than that though, it is a holistic system with a goal of developing enterprises that are sustainable and harmonious with the environment.
Some characteristics of organic farming are: it promotes the use of crop rotations, ensures nutrients produced on the farm are recycled back to the soil, uses composted manure to maintain soil organic matter and fertility, uses preventative pest and disease control methods, and uses only organically approved pesticides, and more.
Organic farming also emphasizes careful processing, and handling methods in order to maintain the organic integrity and vital qualities of the food production at all stages.
In most cases, prohibited products and practices must not be used on certified organic farms for at least three years prior to harvesting certified organic products.
Organic farming is a viable option for almost any crop, including rhubarb.
Home gardeners may want to grow their vegetables organically for different reasons.
Many gardeners want to grow food that is free of chemical pesticides, grown without conventional fertilizers, and free of genetically engineered organisms.
Some people believe that the flavour of organic food surpasses that of non-organic food. Other hobby enthusiasts grow their food organically out of concern for the environment.
