ISO Standards for Agriculture and Sustainable Forestry

International standards are the prerequisite for global business participation. ISO standards are the most commonly accepted ... and often, required standard. ISO produces standards for specific industry niches, including agriculture.

The importance of agriculture dates back thousands of years. Human survival depends on it, and the current climatic change taking place in our world has brought the issue to the front burner.

Forestry Management for Carbon Sinks

Climate change is pushing agricultural practices to the limit, as factors such as soil erosion and drought render the land less fertile. However, the way we farm can also affect the climate itself. Deforestation and greenhouse gases produced by farming have a negative impact on the climate. Therefore, ISO standards for the protection of the environment, and its management, can be applied in agriculture.

ISO has produced standards dealing with the tools and machinery used for farming purposes. Standards for crop protection, as well as irrigation and drainage equipment are also available. State of the art technology is being applied, such as standards in the field of agricultural electronics, which include radio frequency identification of animals.

Agriculture Conservation

ISO does not have one sole technical committee dedicated to standardization in the field of agriculture. In fact, there are many technical committees, each developing standards touching the many aspects of this subject:

  • ISO/TC 23 Tractors and machinery for agriculture and forestry
  • ISO/TC 34 Food products
  • ISO/TC 54 Essential oils
  • ISO/TC 81 Common names for pesticides and other agrochemicals
  • ISO/TC 87 Cork
  • ISO/TC 93 Starch (including derivatives and by-products)
  • ISO/TC 126 Tobacco and tobacco products
  • ISO/TC 134 Fertilizers and soil conditioners

Read about ISO standards for agriculture at the website for International Organization for Standardization.
