Summary

Cotton production has been improved in respect to amount and quality with contributions of scientific and technological innovations. Increased sensitivity to health and environmental issues has caused development of new subjects such as organic agriculture. Organic production systems are based on specific standards that combine tradition, innovation and science. It sustains human and animal health and maintains ecosystem and soil quality. The goal of the organic cotton production system is to sustain human and animal health and maintain ecosystem and soil quality by the producing the cotton without synthetic chemical fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, growth regulators, growth stimulators, boll openers or defoliants [1, 2, 3]. It is a consistency approach since natural fertilizer (usually from animal husbandry) and natural pesticides (Neem-based pesticides, Biosoap, Vegetable oils etc.) are used and it thus represents a circular economy in the agricultural sector [4].
