At germany we call it Bio-Anbau or Bio-Landwirtschaft. The products are a little more expensive and look natural (not even as in the video). A slogan here is: we have this earth just leased from our children.

Many farmers at germany produce bio-food. As seen in the video, they don´t plow the field and use organic manure. Chemical fertilizier is shut down to the absolute minimum. Using spray chemicals (pesticide, herbicide) and mutated seeds is not allowed.
The field will be grubed (from to grub - we call it grubbern) and then sowing starts.

Harvest yield in alternative farming is lower than in orthodox, that makes the goods more expensive.
The skin of vegetable and fruit can be blurry. So it doesn´t look so fine as you see in fruit advertising.

But farming this way saves the environment and the agricultural products taste as well as orthodox produced - some people say, that natural products have a better taste.

And there´s no difference between gardening and farming here in germany. All this is made for protecting drinking water, the biggest treasure on earth.

I hope, I found an answer to your question - tried to explain as well as I can :blush2:

Sorry, special words are hard to translate sometimes - the right way. We call it "grubbern", and I found the english word "grub". So grubed will be better?
And you have to use this implement for example
