Organic farming takes a proactive approach as opposed to treating problems after they emerge. It nurtures the ecosystem by conserving the natural resources and protecting the health of the ecosystem and people.
It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity, and cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than conventional farming methods that bring with them a host of issues. They are not only found to be toxic to humans by increasing the risk of different types of cancers, but they also cause pollution, degradation of soil and water table and enter the food chain at multiple points.
As a result, the produce that reaches the consumer is laden with pesticides that one should steer clear of.
