Why Support Organic Ag?

There are about a million reasons to support organic agriculture, and in just one article, Stephen Leahy outlines a whole slew of them. For those who follow sustainable agriculture news, this is a nice synopsis of why the organic way is the best way, EVEN in developing nations, EVEN for the economy and EVEN in the face of global hunger and global warming.

He quotes Volkert Engelsman, a European CEO and distributor of organic produce, who apparently gets it: 'Organic brings a wide range of social and economic benefits, making it a much better and more efficient way of farming. It is more economically sustainable to invest in the soils of your land than to make the chemical companies richer.'
