Organic Rice Vs Chemical-free Rice In order for a rice to be "organic,” it must be evaluated and certified with the condition that it has been developed for over 3 years. And during that 3 years, we call that rice “chemical-free." Because after the rice has been sent for approval, the farmer must refrain from using chemical, and it can only be sold as chemical-free rice during that period.
