I put forth that Organic agriculture is an irrational idea. Not being an expert, I would appreciate some feedback from those with a better understanding of the science behind all this. Organic agriculture refuses to use chemical means of fertilization or pesticide. I believe they also don't use genetically modified crops (being afraid of gene-mod is extremely irrational.) Anyway, these 3 methods keep millions of people from starving to death. Organic agriculture doesn't improve the flavor or nutrition of the food grown (and may even harm it) and definitely reduces yeilds. Even if only a signifigant minority of farmers use organic farming, the reduction of food supply drives food prices up for everyone (and organic foods themselves are hideously expensive.) It's also bad rather than good for the environment - as more land needs to be used to grow crops, thereby contributing to deforestation and habitat destruction. I'm going by the things I have read and heard and would appreciate feedback.
