The system of integral plant production started in the 70-ies, as a reaction and justified fear of over-application of mineral fertilizers and chemicals in plant protection. This system contains in itself all elements of the traditional production, but chemical control is recommended only when other protective measures fail to secure complete protection from diseases, pests and weeds. The most important cultural practices in the system of integral plant production are: rotation, soil cultivation, selection of varieties and hybrids, sowing, space isolation, fertilization, irrigation, weed control and harvest of crops.
Other important techniques applied in the integral production system are biological measures for control and the forecasting service. In some cases, this type of production can reduce the use of pesticides up to 50%.
Plant protection measures advised for application in integral protection are also recommended and implemented in the EUREPGAP standard, to ensure good quality of agricultural products and food safety.
Organized integral agricultural production is the only way to ensure healthy food free of chemical residues, security for workers and protection of environment from chemical pollution.
