How it Works
O rganic farming is an agricultural system that uses natural fertilizers such as compost, green manure, and bone meal and emphasizes strategies such as crop rotation and complementary planting. … Pest control, mixed planting and pest control.
Organic farming, an agricultural system that uses environmentally-based pest controls and biological fertilizers that are widely available for animal and plant waste and nitrogen-fixing cover crops. Modern organic farming was developed in response to the environmental damage caused by the use of chemical pesticides and conventional agricultural fertilizers, and there are many environmental benefits.
Compared with conventional agriculture, organic farming uses fewer pesticides, reduces soil erosion, reduces nitrate flow in groundwater and surface water, and restores animal waste to the farm. These benefits are compared to the high cost of food for consumers and often lower yields. Indeed, organic crop yields were found to be 25 percent lower than the average crop, although this may vary greatly depending on the type of crop. The challenge for future agricultural agriculture will be to maintain its natural resources, increase yields, and reduce prices while addressing the challenges of climate change and global population growth.

Process & Results
The results of numerous research and published scientific articles have shown that organic farming is beneficial for the environment, including biodiversity. Comparison of biodiversity on live and normal farms has shown that organic farming has often had a positive effect on many species of animals. The results of meta-analyzes comparing biodiversity on live and conventional farms found that natural farms were generally 30% richer in species and 50% more biodiversity than conventional farms. However, there are broad differences between different subjects, which should be discussed; for example, 16% of subjects have found a negative impact on organic farming on animal richness. In addition, it was also found that the impact of organic farming on animal diversity was greater in more controlled areas than in different areas with more uncultivated biotopes. Of the 327 out of 396 relevant results, a higher level of biodiversity in organic farming was achieved compared to conventional farming. Of the 56 papers (14%), there is no guaranteed difference and in 13 cases (3%), organic farming produced a variety of micro-organisms (seven of which are invertebrates). Significantly, the positive effect of biodiversity farming compared to conventional farming was observed in 80% of cases; at 16%, the difference was not clear and biodiversity was found in the 4% comparison
