Yes it is possible to grow organic vegetables. To start, you should feed the soil using organic matter. One way to do this is to use compost. Organic kitchen and garden waste (except for animal product) can be used as compost material for your soil. In addition, you should use legumes and grasses (also referred to as “green manure”) to turn it into your soil. This will help increase organic matter in the soil, decrease certain diseases from ruining your crop, and increase the nutrients in your soil. You should also make sure to apply mulch to your soil. Materials such as hay, straw, and bark can be used as mulching material. Furthermore, you should also fertilize your soil using organic fertilizer.
okay fine. Thank you for your answer.
I think this is not enough to produce organic vegetables, because you didn’t give the organic solution of the insects and diseases of vegetables. You know there are a no. of insects and diseases problem in vegetables.
However, thanks .

There are a lot of ways to prevent pests from growing in your organic garden. One of my favorite is to use specific planting strategies, such as crop rotation and companion planting, which use the plants themselves to ward of insects. Since certain pests only attack certain plants, and are offended by others, you can use those offensive plants to protect the vulnerable ones by planting them near to eachother (this is known as companion planting). Crop rotation is the practice of planting a different crop in a certain space each year. This prevents one plant’s pests from establishing themselves in one spot where they’re guaranteed a consistent food supply year after year. Other methods of pest control that don’t involve any chemicals at all are natural sprays (which you can make at home using things like garlic, chili peppers, oils and soap), weeding and cleaning your garden (removes weeds and gives bugs less places to hide), setting up bug traps, encouraging bug-eating birds and beetles, and building fences to protect against larger pests.
