Is Organic Food Better for the Environment

Greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumptions and land needs are another cause of concern for most people who chose to go organic. But no farming methods has proven to be better for the environment than the other.

Although organic farming uses less energy than conventional methods, they both produce the same amount of gas emissions. Organic farming uses less pesticide but need more land to produce the same amount of food as conventional farming. According to the Swedish Food Agency study, conventional farming has shown to have slightly fewer greenhouse gas emissions.

Because organic food requires more land to produce the same amount of crops as conventional methods, more trees needs to be cut down.
