Organic means free from exposure to industrial chemicals, rice produced from agriculture by applying organic planting patterns only provides all needs organically.
– Local (non-GMO) rice
– Cultivated without industrial chemical pesticides
– Using organic fertilizer
– Use water that is not polluted
– Processed without polish (without preservatives)
When compared with non-organic rice, organic rice has several advantages including:
– When cooked, organic rice tastes fluffier.
– Rice does not spoil quickly. Hold for up to 24 hours.
– More volume compared to non-organic rice.
Consuming organic rice will reduce blood urea levels that have accumulated because of the habit of consuming rice fertilized with urea.
Can reduce levels of heavy metals in the blood due to the use of chemical insecticides. This is what can prevent the body from being attacked by various dangerous diseases in the last decade suffered by many people.
Organic rice has high nutritional and mineral content, glucose, carbohydrate and protein contents are easily broken down, making it safe and very good for diabetics. Organic rice is good for a diet program, preventing cancer, heart attacks, gout, high blood pressure and vertigo.
History of Organic Agriculture
The organic movement began in the 1930s and 1940s as a reaction to the growth of agriculture depending on synthetic fertilizers. Artificial fertilizers were created in the 18th century, initially with Super Phosphate and then derived from mass produced ammonia fertilizer using the Haber-Bosch process developed during World War I.
This initial fertilizer is cheap, strong, and easy to transport in bulk. Similar advances occurred in chemical pesticides in the 1940s, which led to the decade referred to as the ‘pesticide era’.
Sir Albert Howard is widely regarded as the father of organic farming. Further work is carried out by JI Rodale in the United States, Lady Eve Balfour in the United Kingdom, and many others throughout the world.
As a percentage of total agricultural output, organic agriculture has remained small since its inception. As environmental awareness and awareness raising among the general population, supply was initially a demand-driven movement. Premium prices from consumers and in some cases, government subsidies attract many farmers to conversion.
In developing countries, many agricultural farmers according to traditional methods can be compared to organic farming but not certified. In other cases, farmers in developing countries have been converted for economic reasons. As a proportion of total global agricultural output, organic output remains small, but has grown rapidly in many countries, especially in Europe.
The conversion movement from conventional patterns to organic planting patterns is also increasingly developing in Indonesia. Salebak is no exception, since this year there has been an organic planting pattern on an area of 25 Ha, which has never been conventionally planted using chemical fertilizers before, so that the purity of the soil can be seeded.
Not only that, Salebak also actively provides education to the community, both farmer groups, the world of education and the general public about organic farming patterns. By carrying out the tagline “One Stop Organic” salebak focus provides all the needs of organic cropping patterns, from seeding, planting, maintenance to harvest time independently by making seeds, fertilizers, pest control and predators organically.
