KIP (Controlled Integrated Production) or IP (Integrated Production) is an environmentally friendly form of management for the production of high-quality food and raw materials. Natural resources and regulatory mechanisms are largely used and taken into account. Integrated agriculture forms a kind of link between industrialised conventional agriculture, which is mainly focused on productivity, and organic agriculture or viticulture. Preference is given here to methods that have as little impact on the environment as possible, without, however, adopting all the restrictions from organic farming. See also under Integrated Pest Management as well as comprehensively under Organic (Ecological) 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.
