How Organic Food Affects The Environment
The world of farming is facing the worst topsoil erosion in history due to the current agricultural practice of chemical intensive, mono-crop farming. Organic agriculture respects the balance demanded of a healthy ecosystem.
Soil is the foundation of the food chain and the primary focus of organic farming. Also, wildlife is an essential part of a total farm and is encouraged by including forage crops in rotation and by retaining fence rows, wetlands, and other natural areas.
The need for clean drinking water and cleaner air is both critical and essential to both humans and animals alike. Organic farming benefits the environment due to the elimination of polluting chemicals and nitrogen leaching reducing toxic farming runoff and pollutants that contaminate our water, soil and air. Buying organic food can be good way in promoting health and the environment, both for this generation and the next.
