Environmental research and development

There have been several studies that have found considerable environmental advantages to organic farming. Pollution of air and water is found to be less on organic farms, therefore the health of the soil is better and the number and variety of wild species such as plants, butterflies and spiders is increased. Crop edge vegetation is also of particular interest. Several nationally declining plants, which use to be common on cultivated fields, have been observed at the edges and into the crop on organic farms. This is further evidence that potential increases in diversity result from a change to organic production.
