What global advantages does organic farming offer?


Shortly: Some! Organic farming ensures fewer greenhouse gases, protects the climate and maintains soil fertility.
Organic farmers achieve lower yields than their conventional counterparts, but give in return less greenhouse gases into the air:

At vegetable production can the Output to average Reduce 15 percentwhile generating animal foods according to organic guidelines about ten percent less releases climate-damaging emissions into the atmosphere.

An important difference to conventional generation: The No synthetic nitrogen fertilizers, the production of which in conventional crop production accounts for around half of the total energy consumption.

in the ecological cultivation however, the central nitrogen supply via crop rotations guaranteed. As a result, organic farmers save more energy per area. Use organic farmers for fertilization especially organic fertilizerthat they build themselves from forage plants and manure.

TheOrganic farming is gentlenot only thatclimate, but also takes care of aintact environment.

Hereceives thenatural soil fertility through an optimized crop rotation,reduces soil erosion, protects water and biodiversity as no artificial fertilizers or pesticides are used.

Organic foodare considered thesecond largest climate friend - only "eating less meat and dairy products" saves even more greenhouse gases.

The Öko-Institut e.V. has calculated that themost greenhouse gas emissions of an average household bytheConsumption of animal-produced foodshow dairy (59 percent) and meat products (27 percent) are created.

Scientists at the University of Giessen have found that buy more "organic" andeat less meat saves two thirds of greenhouse gases - compared to a meat-rich and conventionally produced diet.

A vegan diet from organic production is said to be the most climate-friendly form of nutrition, while aMixed food from conventional production the Most polluted environment.
