KIP (Controlled Integrated Production) or IP (Integrated Production) is an environmentally friendly form of farming for the production of high-quality food and raw materials. Natural resources and regulatory mechanisms are largely utilised and taken into account. Integrated agriculture forms a kind of link between industrialised conventional agriculture, which is mainly geared towards productivity, and organic agriculture or viticulture. Here, preference is given to methods that have the least possible impact on the environment, but without adopting all the restrictions of organic farming. See also under Integrated pest management and comprehensively under Organic viticulture.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
