Organic Farming 2018 Dallas, Texas, USA September 24-25, 2018

Organic farming may be defined as an integrated farming system that strives for sustainability, the enhancement of soil fertility, biological diversity with rare exceptions prohibiting synthetic pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, and genetically modified organisms & growth hormones. Organic farming is an alternate agricultural system which relies on fertilizers of organic origin such as manure, compost and bone meal. Organic farming places emphasis on techniques like crop rotation and companion planting and encourages biological pest control, mixed cropping and the fostering of insect predators. In general, organic standards are designed to allow the use of naturally occurring substances while strictly limiting or prohibiting the use of synthetic substances. Naturally occurring pesticides such as pyrethrin and rotenone are permitted, whereas synthetic fertilizers and pesticides are prohibited in general. Synthetic substances that are allowed include elemental sulphur, copper sulfate and Ivermectin. Genetically modified organisms, nano materials, plant growth regulators, hormones, human sewage sludge and use in livestock husbandry are prohibited. Motives for promoting organic farming include real or perceived advantages in autonomy/independence, self-sufficiency, sustainability openness, health, food security and food safety. Organic agricultural methods are internationally regulated and legally enforced by many nations on the standards set by the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM), an international umbrella organization established in 1972.

Why in Dallas, USA

The urban agriculture movement in Dallas, TX, continues to grow, as community members increasingly desire a connection with the land and their food. Many groups work tirelessly to build community ties, create a more sustainable food system, and overcome food insecurity. Dallas is a city in the U.S. state of Texas.

Come be Part of it...!


Organic farming contributes generously to future agricultural production worldwide by improving soil quality and pest control, thereby reducing environmental impacts of regular cultivating.

To grow healthy food, we must start with healthy soil. If we treat soil with harmful pesticides and chemicals, we may end up with soil that cannot thrive on its own. Natural cultivation practices are far better than chemical soil management. A large nine-year study by USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS), shows that organic farming builds up organic soil matter better than conventional no-till farming and according to Dr. Elaine Ingham, just one teaspoon of compost-rich organic soil may host as many as 600 million to 1 billion helpful bacteria from 15,000 species.


The organic farming market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.4% from 2016 and reach USD 1.12 billion by 2021. The market is primarily driven by factors such as high production of organic crops, implementation of stringent registration policies in agriculture, and increased expenditure on R&D by biological product manufacturers. The high growth potential in the Asia-Pacific region and untapped regions such as Africa and Middle East provide new growth opportunities for market players.

The global biostimulants market was valued at USD 1.79 Billion in 2016; this market is projected to reach USD 3.29 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 10.43% from 2017 to 2022.

Market report on Organic Farming, Biodynamics & Modern Agriculture

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global seed treatment (Organic Farming & Biological Treatment) market will grow at a CAGR of around 10% by 2020. Farmers are increasingly opting for biological seed treatment methods owing to the environmental impact and health hazards associated with the chemical agents. Biological agents are extensively researched and developed to enable organic farming and sustainable agriculture.

Biological seed treatments are cost-effective and offer environmental benefits, which makes them preferable over chemical agents. Biological treatment agents are either used in isolation or in combination with chemicals to improve their efficiency and yield potential. Several seed companies in the market are investing in R&D to develop target-specific products by studying the control mechanism of these agents. Such developments in biological seed treatment methodologies will propel the growth of the overall seed treatment market during the forecast period in 2020.

Organic Farming overall market:

The USA occupies around 33% of the overall market revenue during the forecast period, which is one of the largest treated seed exporting countries in the world. Factors behind this are innovations in treatment methods of crop seeds, particularly corn, maize, wheat, and soybean drives the growth of the market. The penetration and requirement for seeds with modern traits such as genetically engineered corn and soybeans will positively influence the growth of the market in North America.

This market is extremely fragmented and comprises several domestic and international players. Among them some players are also developing seed treatments that can control a broad range of pathogens. Innovations in seed treatment techniques will play a crucial role in market growth as well as in the profitability of the farmers and vendors of seed treatment solutions.

Leading vendors in the market are -

  • BASF
  • Bayer
  • Monsanto
  • Nufarm
  • Syngenta
