The Chemical Firms are coming out on the attack!

Posted by Lindy on May 17, 2010


Two recent publications, one referring to organic farming in Africa and one following a comparative study in the UK both are coming down on the side of saying that without commercial farming, inorganic fertilizers and chemical pest control, we will (a) produce less and (b) not be able to feed the world.

The recent links: Africa needs fertilizer: http://www.africanagricultureblog.com/2010/05/organic-agriculture-not-realistic.html

UK: Commercial is best: http://www.africanagricultureblog.com/2010/05/organic-farms-not-conservation-cure-all.html

The counter-attack: organic farming could feed Africa https://lindym.wordpress.com/2008/10/28/organic-farming-could-feed-africa/
