Organic agriculture enhances soil structures, conserves water, mitigates climate change, and ensures sustained biodiversity.
Sadly, agriculture in general has been a major contributor to the environmental problems of our time. Agriculture need not cause such problems.
World-wide, farmers are discovering that organic farming can be part of the solution.
‘Through its holistic nature, organic farming integrates wild biodiversity, agro-biodiversity and soil conservation, and takes low-intensity farming one step further by eliminating the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and genetically modified organisms (GMOs), which is not only an improvement for human health (food quality) and agro-biodiversity, but also for the associated off-farm biotic communities.’
