Organic Farming

It's now more important than ever to farm organically – why?

    - Organic farming encourages biodiversity
    - Organic farms can produce the same yields as non organic
    - Organic farms show lower disease prevalence than non organic
    - Organic produce can sell for a higher price than non organic
    - While organic farms may be more labour intensive, they usually operate on lower costs and are profitable
    - The EU is voting to ban a popular herbicide, because it has been linked to birth defects.  A comprehensive report on a widely used herbicide by UK-based sustainability NGO "Earth Open Source" has reported that industry and EU regulators knew in 1980s-1990s that a chemical used in herbicides - glyphosate - can cause birth defects in laboratory animals.
