“One of the biggest differences that is seen time and time again across all research between organic and conventional farming practices is the effect on the land. Organic farming works to increase sustainability, biodiversity and to encourage good soil and air quality. This is maintained by natural growing practices, the avoidance of harmful chemicals, and the continued practice of crop rotation and other natural farming methods.” Fresh Connect
