Organic farming is a practice that safeguards the vitality of our soil by restricting the usage of synthetic pesticides and chemicals in fields. This preserves agricultural lands for long term sustainable usage. In addition, it reduces the exposure of farm workers to harmful pesticides and provides consumers with produce free from artificial substances.
Critics argue that organic farming requires more land to yield the same amount of organic produce resulting in lower short-term productivity. However, it is crucial to recognise that the bountiful gift of regenerative agricultural land, capable of producing crops over the long term, should not be overshadowed by temporary productivity concerns.
