Organic farming strikes back

A while back we were reading the Cornell study which indicates that organic farms produce the same yeilds as non-organic ones, yet in a more efficient manner. They of course consume less energy amungst other things. So already we can see economic reason for farmers to go organic; equal output with less overhead costs. The hard numbers Cornell comes up with are pretty impressive though. …but wait, theres more; here comes the BBC to point out that these same organic farms which are economicly superior are also ecologically superior with respect to the fauna. Now thats quite the 1-2 punch! Your move farmers.
