Organic farming gives you a long live life. Practice it to conserve yourself

Organic trend is on the peak in humans. The interest in organic products has risen steadily over the recent years with new health super fruits emerging. It can be profitable and appeals to consumers as both a healthy and ethical choice. Beyond money and ethics, though, organic farming practices result in numerous environmental benefits too. Here are some of the best ways organic agriculture impacts on the environment.

  1. Organic farming reduces exposure to pesticides and chemicals.
  2. It builds healthy soil. Organic cultivation is better for local wildlife. Conventional synthetic herbicides and pesticides often kill non-target animals, plants, and insects.
  3. It does not only build healthy soil, but it helps combat serious soil, land issues and erosion.
  4. Organic farming is sustainable and nurtures the natural biodiversity and structure within its soils and surrounding environment, while also reducing the use of non-renewable resources.
  5. Instead of depleting soil nutrients with synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, organic farming strengthens soil by composting, cover cropping, and crop rotation.
  6. Organic farming helps keep water supplies clean of toxic run off and chemicals.
  7. It also supports water conservation and water health in the field or land.
  8. The organic agriculture system actually reduces carbon-di-oxide and helps slow climate change, keeping it out of the air.
  9. Organic agriculture relies on preventative measures to combat pests and invasive weeds, not chemical pesticides and herbicides.
  10. Organic standards prohibit clearing of primary ecosystems for further cultivation.
  11. Organic farming typically produces less waste because it relies less on external resources and more on renewable resources.
  12. Organic practices support and protect bees and other pollinators important to crop growth because it decreases exposure to toxic pesticides, encouraging natural habitats and biodiversity.
  13. Buying organic will increase demand and “lead to a reversal of conventional farming practices” which will have long term effects on the land and our health.
