Organic Farming Beats Conventional Farming

A study published in Bio science reviewed a 22-year study comparing organic and conventional farming on similar plots with similar crops. Over the 22 years of this study, the organic sites generated yields equal to or greater than the conventional crops. During drought years the conventional crops collapsed, while the organic crops' production fluctuated only slightly. The conventional crops had pesticides leaching into the water that exceeded EPA safety limits, while the organic crops used 30% less fossil energy.

So, as a country what are we waiting for? Besides, organic produce even tastes better!
