What Is Organic Agriculture

The USDA National Organic Standards Board claims that organic agriculture is "an ecological production management system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity." The purpose of this form of agriculture is maximizing the health and productivity of not only the soil and plants, but also animals and other people. Organic agriculture has many benefits that traditional agriculture do not. Climate change Organic agriculture uses closed nutrient cycles. Because of this fact, this form of agriculture can cease or reverse climate change. It can drastically decrease the amount of fossil fuels that are used in the environment. Due to the fact that synthetic nitrogen is no longer in use, fossil fuel usage is decreased by up to 33 percent. Productivity Lots of studies show that organic crops yield 91 percent successful crops. Organic agriculture uses 50 percent less fertilizer and energy and up to 97 percent less pesticides than conventional agriculture. Clearly, organic agriculture brings about a higher quality of crops compared to other forms of agriculture. Profitability Organic agriculture decreases the cost of pesticide inputs and synthetic fertilizer. In addition, consumers are willing to pay a higher price for organic crops. Because of both these things, organic agriculture can cause profits to increase. Farms that use organic methods are much more profitable than those who do not. Organic agriculture is a very beneficial method of farming. Try it out, and you can see for yourself the many benefits that organic farming can give you and the environment.
