Organic Living benefits the environment
We all know that organic living is good for the environment because it avoids the use of harsh chemicals, fertilizers and pesticides that are harmful to the environment. But, what are its specific benefits? Today I wanted to share with all how your small purchase of organic food can help the environment. 

Soil Fertility

One of the fundamental principles of organic farming is to control soil organic carbon to increase soil fitness. Since the use of artificial fertilizers is prohibited, organic producers boost soil fertility with the aid of incorporating manure or compost into the soil, leading to expanded soil organic carbon.

Water Conservation

Many studies have shown that within a few decades we may face a shortage of water in India and the fact that the runoff from chemicals used in conventional farming goes into our water is a cause for concern. Organic farming helps keep the health of our water supply by preventing runoff as it uses less water for irrigation.

Manage Greenhouse gas Emission

Organic agriculture can help address climate change by lowering greenhouse gas emissions. There's a direct correlation between nitrous oxide emissions and the quantity of nitrogen fertilizer used on agricultural land.

Because organic farming does now not permit the usage of synthetic nitrogen fertilizers, focusing alternatively on setting up closed nutrient cycles, minimizing losses via runoff, volatilization, and emissions, nitrogen levels on organic farms have a tendency to be lesser per hectare than on conventional farms.
