As part of an organic farm system other crops are grown. These crops help build
the soil, add nutrients and trap insects. They also provide food for the farmers'
families and local community. Crop diversification allows organic cotton farmers
to grow other cash crops for export too. Read more about farm system crops in our
‘Crop Diversification Report’ available on the Textile Exchange website.
