« Endosulfan Found in Bone Marrow of Children with Blood Cancers. Legislators Consider Repealing Pesticide Ban on Connecticut School Grounds ». 23 Feb Organic Farming Improves Pollination Success in Strawberries Beyond Pesticides, February 23, 2012 A new study finds organic farming practices in strawberry production result in much greater pollination success than chemical-intensive methods. Researchers also determined that this effect was apparent within just two to four years of conversion to organic, suggesting that there is not a significant lag time before pollination benefits are seen after adopting organic farming practices. Pollination of insect pollinated crops is correlated with pollinator abundance and diversity. Researchers speculate that this effect may be due to an increase in insect pollinator abundance and/or diversity. The researchers evaluated the effect of organic farming on pollination of strawberry plants focusing on whether 1 pollination success was higher on organic farms compared to con...

Organic farming is 3 times better than GM. Atomic Spin. Atomic Spin. Organic farming is 3 times better than GM. In the developed world, Organic farming yields slightly less than conventional farming typically it looks like organic farming gives you about 90-95% as much as you would get from regular farming. Bringing any sort of organised, scientific methods into farming will give you more crops, regardless of whether the science is based on organic farming or conventional farming incidentally, this actually disproves the author s own claim that permaculture and traditional peasant agriculture are the best. This doesn t prove that organic farming is better than conventional farming at all in terms of crop yields, in the developed world where pesticides and fertilizers are commonplace, it gives lower yields. There may be other reasons to replace conventional farming with organic, but crop yields are not one. Email. You are commenting using your WordPress.com account.

Organic Agriculture Fights Back Critics of organic agriculture claim that it is based more on ideology than on environmental or economic merit. Lim Li Ching ching@i-sis.org.uk reviews the evidence and turns the table on the critics. Organic farming largely excludes synthetic inputs - pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers. and focuses instead on biological processes such as composting and other measures to maintain soil fertility, natural pest control and diversifying crops and livestock. Organic agriculture gives priority to long-term ecological health, such as biodiversity and soil quality, contrasting with conventional farming, which concentrates on short-term productivity gains. Organic farming has been denigrated for being less efficient in land use and having lower yields than conventional farming, and even accused of posing potential health risks.

By 2005 Europe's organic land was 3.9 percent while the United States' had risen to 0.6 percent IFOAM 2007:14-15. IFOAM's The World of Organic Agriculture: Statistics and Emerging Trends 2007 lists the countries which added the most hectares and had the highest percentage growth in 2007 IFOAM 2007:27-28. On the other hand, a prominent 21-year Swiss study found an average of 20% lower organic yields over conventional, along with 50% lower expenditure on fertilizer and energy, and 97% less pesticides. A long-term study by U.S Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service ARS scientists concluded that, contrary to widespread belief, organic farming can build up soil organic matter better than conventional no-till farming, which suggests long...

... Sunday, 04 October 2015. Organic Farming. In recent years organic farming has grown dramatically in the countries of the European Union. Especially in Spain, France and the United Kingdom, which have been the countries most new hectares have been dedicated to organic crop production. That the European Union has some active producers is logical, as is the market for organic food and drink most of the world, although in recent years North America is behind them. That the European Union there are large areas of organic farming, does not mean that all member states to behave the same. Any surplus of the EU organic farming and products of higher added value, are meant for export to neighboring countries markets and interest in certain European organic food. The main organic crops for the international sale are fruit and fresh and processed vegetables, nuts, coffee, tea, cocoa, herbs and spices, oilseeds and their derivatives, sweeteners, grains, pulses, processed foods and not intended for human consumption s...

Title: Natural Products for Weed Management in Organic Farming in the USA Authors. Natural Products for Weed Management in Organic Farming in the USA. In contrast, the popularity of and demand for organic foods has grown throughout the developed world, which has resulted in the conversion of millions of hectares from conventional to organic agriculture. Neither synthetic herbicides nor transgenic crops are accepted by organizations that approve products for use in organic farming in the US. This leaves very few chemical options, with organic farmers relying on combinations of mulches, tillage, hand labor, biocontrol, rotation, and cover crops for weed management. This paper outlines the few chemical products approved for such use in the US and discusses the need for new and more efficacious weed management tools suitable for organic agriculture.

*  Organic farming and biodiversity
van Elsen 2000 Soil-bound organisms often benefit because of increased bacteria populations due to natural fertilizer spread such as manure, while experiencing reduced intake of herbicides and pesticides commonly associated with conventional farming methods. Out of six studies comparing earthworm biodiversity to organic and conventional farming methods, all six suggested a preference for organic practices including a study at the pioneering Haughley farm in 1980/1981 that compared earthworm populations and soil properties after 40 years. Bird populations are increased further with optimal habitat for biodiversity, rather than organic alone, with systems such as Conservation Grade. All but three of the studies indicated that there was a higher diversity of spider species on organic farms, in addition to populations of species. Two of the studies indicated higher species diversity, but statistically insignificant populations between organic and standard farming methods. Bacteria-feeding nematodes showed prefere...

To listen to Bill Brammer, the longtime owner of Be Wise Ranch, what the county proposes to do is nothing less than to put his multimillion-dollar operation, one that thousands of people depend on for their organic fruits and vegetables, out of business. But by then legal machinations had already been set in motion by the county to control the eye gnat problem both in Jacumba and in southern Escondido, which Be Wise Ranch abuts and where residents also say the insects during the hot summer can be unbearable.

The white paper by the Rodale Institute, a nonprofit that advocates for the use of organic practices, says that using regenerative organic agriculture, such as low or no-tillage, cover crops and crop rotation, will keep photosynthesized carbon dioxide in the soil instead of returning it to the atmosphere. The findings show that organic farming yields are lower than conventional in the first few years, while conventional crops do better in the first years than they do later on. He says that organic farming betters the soil over time, while conventional farming depletes it. Cavigelli says that organic crops in his study yield 80% of what conventional yields, in contrast to the Rodale study that showed similar yields. The difference, he says, is that while the organics show s...

Article Summarized by Meridian Institute In this opinion piece, Henry I. Miller, a physician and molecular biologist at Stanford University, writes that while some tout organic farming as a sustainable way to feed the planet’s expanding population, the evidence argues otherwise. Organic farming, he says, could work well for certain local environments on a small scale, but such farms produce far less food per unit of land and water than conventional ones. Organic agriculture’s low yields, he adds, impose various stresses on farmland and especially on water consumption. He cites a British meta-analysis that found "ammonia emissions, nitrogen leaching and nitrous oxide emissions per product unit were higher from organic systems" than conventional farming systems, as were "land use, eutrophication potential and acidification potential p...

One practical example of holistic agricultural management systems that promote and enhance agro-ecosystem health, including biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity is organic agriculture. Benefits of organic management on soil biological activity are summarized below 1 :. Organic management increases the abundance and species richness of beneficial arthropods living above ground and earthworms, and thus improves the growth conditions of crops. The biomass of earthworms in organic systems is 30-40% higher than in conventional systems, their density even 50-80% higher. In organically managed soils, the activity of these organisms is higher. Microbial carbon. The total mass of micro-organisms in organic systems is 20-40% higher than in the conventional system with manure and 60-85% than in the conventional system without man...

By Roddy Scheer and Doug Moss. Food Drug Administration, argues that conventional farming — which uses synthetic pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers and often genetically modified GM seed stock to maximize yields — is actually better for the environment, producing more food and using less water compared to organic farming. “Organic farming might work well for certain local environments on a small scale, but its farms produce far less food per unit of land and water than conventional ones,” says Miller. agriculture — typically 20 percent to 50 percent less than conventional agriculture — impose various stresses on farmland and especially on water consumption.”. “If the scale of organic production were significantly increased, says Miller, the lower yields would increase the pressure for the conversion of more land to farming and more water for irrigation, both of which are serious environmental issues.” He adds that conventional farming’s embrace of GM crops — a no-no to organic farme...

Publication request: Organic management systems to enhance ecosystem services ARS : Research. We found that soil carbon sequestration and nitrogen fertility can be greater while impact on climate change can be lower in organic systems that use animal manures and cover crops compared to conventional no-tillage systems. Ecosystem services provided by organic systems may be improved by expanding crop rotations to include greater crop diversity, improving nutrient management, and reducing tillage intensity and frequency. More diverse crop rotations, especially those that include perennial forages, can reduce weed pressure, economic risk, soil erosion, nitrous oxide emissions, animal manure inputs and soil P loading, while increasing grain yield and soil fertility. Management practices that reduce tillage frequency and intensity in organic systems are being developed to reduce soil erosion and labor and energy needs. Technical Abstract: Organic grain cropping systems can enhance a number of ecosystem services comp...

Organic farmers plant alternate groups of plants roots, cereals, brassicas, legumes to add fertility and prevent pests and diseases from building up. Some plants, like clover, add nutrients to the soil – while wheat and potatoes use up nutrients. Using chemicals to fertilise the soil often only provides crops with the three basic elements nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium that they need to grow, rather than providing them with all the nutrients they need. As well as ensuring soil nutrients don’t get depleted, crop rotations also prevent the build up of pests and diseases, which help organic farmers to avoid the use of pesticides.

From: Environment News Service www.ens-newswire.com read the full study here Organic Orchard Practices Found to Lower Nitrogen Pollution STANFORD, California, March 8, 2006 ENS - Organic farming has been promoted as an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional agriculture, and new research provides evidence to support that claim. Some trees used in the experiment were raised with conventional synthetic fertilizers. During the yearlong experiment, organically grown trees were fed either composted chicken manure or alfalfa meal, while conventionally raised plants were given calcium nitrate, a synthetic fertilizer widely used by commercial apple growers. We measured nitrate leaching over an entire year and found that it was 4.4 to 5.6 times higher in the conventional treatment than in the two organic treatments, with the integrated treatment in between, says John Reganold, Regents Professor of Soil Science at Washington State University and co-author of the study. Our findings not only score anot...

The combination of record floods and record numbers of organic farms has led many to wonder about the safety of even our organic groceries. For one, the FDA doesn’t allow any flooded out crops—organic or otherwise—to be sold or consumed by people. As to when farmers, organic or conventional, can replant fields inundated with floodwaters, the FDA suggests waiting at least 60 days to ensure contaminants aren’t still in the soil. No discussion of organic farming and flooding is complete without mention of global warming. The good news is that farming organically is one way to stave off global warming. Research at the Rodale Institute found that “organic farming helps combat global warming by capturing atmospheric carbon dioxide and incorporating it into the soil, whereas conventional farming exacerbates the greenhouse effect by producing a net release of carbon into the atmosphere.” And Cornell University researcher David Pimentel found that organic farms use 63 percent of the energy used by same-size convention...

Balane on July 2 2010 12:55 am VALENCIA CITY (MindaNews/1 July) – The City Government of Valencia is taking a new step in its campaign to convince farmers to go organic rice farming. Agriculture officials are dispersing ducks to rice farmers to develop organic rice farming and breed its duck meat industry at the same time, according to Gerson Salvan, city agriculture officer. Salvan told MindaNews the project will support the city’s program on quality organic farming and at the same time teach farmers to raise ducks and process duck meat as a subsidiary industry.

There are lots of reasons for choosing to eat organic, but one of the most compelling is that organic farmers don’t use toxic persistent pesticides and that’s better for all of us. Toxic persistent pesticides aren’t allowed in organic farming because they can be harmful to our health and the environment and they break down very slowly, remaining in our soil, water and air. Organic farmers fight pests a better way. If organic farmers do need to control pests further, they can use a small number of substances that don't h...

(5/36) Organic farming and soil carbon sequestration: what do we really know about the benefits?

Organic farming is believed to improve soil fertility by enhancing soil organic matter (SOM) contents. An important co-benefit would be the sequestration of carbon from atmospheric CO2. Such a positive effect has been suggested based on data from field experiments though many studies were not designed to address the issue of carbon sequestration. The aim of our study was to examine published data in order to identify possible flaws such as missing a proper baseline, carbon mass measurements, or lack of a clear distinction between conventional and organic farming practices, thereby attributing effects of specific practices to organic farming, which are not uniquely organic. A total of 68 data sets were analyzed from 32 peer-reviewed publications aiming to compare conventional with organic farming. The analysis revealed that after conversion, soil C content (SOC) in organic systems increased annually by 2.2% on average, whereas in conventional systems SOC did not change significantly. The majority of publications reported SOC concentrations rather than amounts thus neglecting possible changes in soil bulk density. 34 out of 68 data sets missed a true control with well-defined starting conditions. In 37 out of 50 cases, the amount of organic fertilizer in the organic system exceeded that applied in the compared conventional system, and in half of the cases crop rotations differed between systems. In the few studies where crop rotation and organic fertilization were comparable in both systems no consistent difference in SOC was found. From this data analysis, we conclude that the claim for beneficial effects of organic farming on SOC is premature and that reported advantages of organic farming for SOC are largely determined by higher and often disproportionate application of organic fertilizer compared to conventional farming.  (+info)

(6/36) Simple techniques to increase the production yield and enhance the quality of organic rice bran oils.

This study develops simple techniques for increasing production yield and refining of crude RBO (CRBO). It was found that pre-heating of rice bran by hot air oven to reach 60 degrees C before being extracted by screw press machine increased the yield from 4.8 to 8.3%w/w. This paper suggested three simple steps for refining of organic CRBO: (1) filtering using filter papers (2) sedimentation by adding 4%w/v fuller's earth and (3) bleaching by running through a packed column of activated carbon. These steps significantly enhanced the qualities of RBO when compared to CRBO before treatment. It was found that the lightness of oil as indicated by color value (L*) increased from 22.8 to 28.7, gum and wax decreased from 3.6 to 1.3%w/w. However, the simple refining method had no effect on peroxide value and free fatty acid content. Moreover, it slightly induced the loss of oryzanol content from 2.8 to 2.2%w/w.  (+info)
