The following link includes an extensive list of the differences between organic and traditional cotton ranging from cultivation (difference in uses of pesticides and fertilizers) to dying and transportation.
Non organic cotton typically applies fungicides or insecticides on their seeds, uses synthetic fertilizers on the soil, uses herbicides to kill weeds, uses toxic pesticides to control pests (insecticides account for about 25% of the world consumption), and during harvesting toxic chemicals are used for defoliation. However, organic cotton uses untreated seeds, through crop rotation develops strong soil, removes weeds physically, to control pests farmers use beneficial insects, biological, and cultural practices, and relies on seasonal freeze for defoliation.
