    Translation of 'organic'

    Can anyone please tell me the best way of translating 'organic' (as in food and farming) into Russian?

    Also what's the difference between the following terms or are they all synonyms for 'organic'.

    - без химических удобрений
    - натуральный
    - экологически чистая

    Many thanks

    my try:

    organic - органический
    in farming - the organic fertilizer - органическое удобрение (singular)
    органические удобрения (more common plural)

    без химических удобрений - without chemical fertilizers - natural like manure, guano or humus
    натуральный - natural, the same with the above
    экологически чистая - ecologicaly safe, secure for nature and people

    and also
    химический - here means synthetical, the chemicals synthesized by people
    organic can be as natural as chemical - like phosphorus or nitrogen

    for food - organic - usually натуральный
    Я так думаю.

    Strictly speaking, there is also an organic chemistry (органи́́ческая хи́́мия). Some of its products cannot be called 'natural' by any means.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Do you stress consonants?
