#NaturesGOLD, what makes organic farming unique?

Reduced Exposure to Pesticides and Chemicals

If every farmer is converted to organic production, we could eliminate 500 million pounds of persistent and harmful pesticides from entering the environment annually.

  • Pesticides allow disease resistance to build up in plants, weeds, plant-eating-insects, fungi, and bacteria.
  • Pesticides and chemicals sprayed on plants contaminate the soil, water supply, and air. Sometimes these harmful pesticides stick around for decades (maybe longer).
  • Synthetic chemicals also discourage smart farming practices such as cover crops and crop rotation, which in turn, may cause other harmful environmental problems like erosion.

Organic Farming Builds Healthy Soil

To grow healthy food, you must start with healthy soil. If you treat the soil with harmful pesticides and chemicals, you may end up with soil that cannot thrive on its own. Natural cultivation practices are far better than chemical soil management.
