Why Organic is Better for Nature?
Since 1970, 41% of animal species have declined, and more than one in ten is now critically endangered. The main cause of these decreases has been recognized as intensive farming practices, although organic farming offers an option.
Organic farming is :
- Better for the planet
- Better for nature and wildlife
- Better for people
So, how is organic better for nature?
Organic farmers rely on healthy ecosystems to control pests and protect their soils because they don't use artificial pesticides. Pests like as aphids and slugs, for example, are eaten by animals such as beetles and birds.
As a result, organic farmers are more likely to farm in ways that benefit wildlife, such as planting trees, beetle banks, and wildflower margins, and digging ponds around their fields. As a result, organic farms have a greater biological diversity.
Organic farming also results in cleaner water since organic farmers do not utilize the nitrogen fertilizers that are commonly used in conventional farming, which can cause ocean dead zones and kill aquatic life.
On average, plant, insect and bird life is 50% more abundant on organic farms, and there are around 75% more wild bees on organic farms.
Biodiversity is vital for healthy ecosystems.
