More about organic gardening:
Organic gardening is talked about as a few facts and a lot of fiction. Something grownorganically definitely cannot be defined, according to chemical agriculture. People who don’t do the research are getting it confused with health food. They may seem similar, but are not, though often confused with one another.
Polluted environments and eroding farmlands cause the soil and human health to degenerate. Eradicating pests with poison damages man’s health and environment. "Conventional" (the term for non-organic methods of plant growth) agriculture finds it extremely costly to use chemicals.
Use of organic methods such as composting, adding natural fertilizers and minerals, liberating beneficial insects, changing cultural practices or just planting better adopted varieties would stop harmful agricultural practices, herbicides and paving over. Our soils need to be protected. Bare soil in full sunlight is 25-35 degrees warmer than nearby soil under mulch or plant cover.
Grown organically means food grown with a certain technique and without a bag of poisonous chemicals to control pests and other problems associated with non-organic gardening.
Pests become immune to manufactured pesticides and that leads to a stronger pesticide development. Natural pesticides can be worked with and pests are not immune to them, making the process better for the environment.
