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.
