For all those addicted to fertiliser and pesticide, chew on this (to paraphrase):
First, there's a 10% to 20% premium to be earned by selling organic products abroad
Second, organic farming slashes cultivation and input costs by up to 70% due to the use of cheaper, natural products like manure instead of chemicals and fertilisers.
Third, western, modern farming has spoiled agriculture in the country. An overuse of chemicals has made land acidic and hard, which means it needs even more water to produce, which is costly.
Read the article, it's a perfect and pragmatic rebuttal to the need for fertiliser and pesticide. Those tools only help agricultural companies, not farmers.
