Organic farming is better for the environment

We are currently facing up to a global food security challenge which requires us to feed a rapidly growing population whilst making the most efficient use of natural resources.


Organic farming is a lower-yield agriculture (studies indicate that organic yields are 34% lower when conventional and organic systems are at their most comparable) and this means that more un-cropped land would need to be brought back into production in order to maintain or increase yields, with clear consequences for wildlife and the environment.
