Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are so many new cases of cancers and other chronic, even life threatening conditions and diseases and everyone is looking for a potential cause or reason. For many people, it is the diet that they eat that is deemed the most likely suspect. For those people, eating more fruits and vegetables may be necessary to help combat the risk factors that are already present. But, what if the good foods that you are eating are the problem? One of the biggest organic farming advantages is with better health- at least in most cases.

But, there are other organic farming advantages that can be considered as well. For instance, the crops that are grown organically, tend to be less stressful to the environment. Pesticides and herbicides as well as some types of fertilizers tend to cause the soil to be completely different from the surrounding area and can impact the native plants or the water sources. That in turn can lead to more serious issues for the crops which can make the farmer to use more artificial means to get them to grow. Organic farming advantages are not only for the people then, but for the environment and the crops that are being grown in the area.

Another common issue with the crops in some areas are a simple matter of location. The crops are meant to be grown in the temperature or other conditions so they struggle. To combat the conditions, the farmer will use a number of processes that helps them grow even though by nature they should not. All things being equal, organic farming advantages keeps plants strong and healthy by making sure they are growing where they truly belong.

In the market place, the organic farming advantages can be seen by the popularity and demand of the shoppers. While many people will go to the organic section of the grocery store for their organic foods, others will only go to the local farmers market. Being able to get the shoppers to buy your crops is the goal- and being able to label your items as organic is the best way to accomplish it. For those who only buy organic or those who are trying to eat more organic produce, that label is important.

The organic farming advantages come for the environment, especially in terms of the local eco system but for the consumer of the foods that come from organic sources. There are fewer dangerous and unnatural ingredients to deal with in organic foods. While they need more work to get them to grow and there are usually far less from each crop, the pesticide, herbicide free fruits and veggies are usually far superior in flavor and vitamins. The organic fruits are not necessarily going to be the most beautiful on the shelves but why pay for wax and harmful chemicals when you can get real nutritious produce, the way that nature intended?
