Abstract

The offer of healthier foods, the search for agricultural and economic sustainability and the appreciation of the role of farmers are the notorious foundations of organic agriculture in society. These principles are reflected in the insertion of specific agricultural practices adopted in the soil, which are based on the maintenance of soil fertility and long-term biological activity. Therefore, management practices that favor and contemplate these principles are of great interest to researchers and organic farmers. From this, the objective of this review was to understand the main effects of different management practices on organic vegetable production. Preliminary studies show that there is a great incentive for the establishment of this management system in organic production.
