A 30-year-long study found organic farming to outperform conventional

The results of a 30-year trial that has compared organic and conventional agriculture side by side since 1981 were presented earlier this year. They show that the organic agriculture system in the study produced 40% less greenhouse gases, was more energy efficient, built soil carbon rather than depleted the soil and matched the yields of the conventional agriculture system. The organic agriculture system was also found to be more resistant to drought.
