With a growing population, nearly 10 billion people by 2050, and an increasing demand for food, agriculture is placed under extreme pressure. We heavily rely on services that the industry provides to us, such as food, clothes, wood, and many others. Unfortunately, with biodiversity losses and deforestation practices that accompany modern agriculture, these services are currently at risk. Therefore, we must take actions to sustain biodiversity, soils and forests for the generations to come. Sustainable measures, such as organic agriculture, are part of a solution.
Organic farming works in harmony with nature rather than against it. By means, it involves using techniques to attain good crop yields without harming the natural environment and the people surrounded by it.
According to HDRA-The Organic Organisation , growing organic provides long-term environmental health and socio-economic benefits that cannot be found with conventional farming. This among other benefits include the increase of long-term soil fertility, control pests and diseases without harming the environment meaning that organic pesticides that are used must be derived from natural sources and not synthetically manufactured. Next to this, research from Washington State University has shown that organic agriculture is between 22 percent and 35 percent more profitable for farmers than conventional. The reason for this is simply because the farmers get a higher price when they sell certified-organic crops.
