Biocyclic Vegan Standard
Biocyclic vegan agriculture means purely plant-based organic farming. This form of cultivation excludes all commercial livestock farming and slaughtering of animals and does not use any inputs of animal origin. Special emphasis is placed on the promotion of biodiversity, healthy soil life, the closure of organic cycles and on systematic humus build-up.
The fundamental principles for biocyclic vegan agriculture have been laid down in the Biocyclic Vegan Standard which has been applicable worldwide since 2017 as a global standard for vegan organic agriculture accredited by IFOAM.
