OTA Rebuts “Biased” Report On Organic Agriculture From Radio’s Marketplace Program

May 5, 2011: 03:00 PM EST
In a rebuttal of a “biased” American Public Media Marketplace report (“The Non-Organic Future”) that “perpetuated the myth of low-yield organic agriculture,” the Organic Trade Association offered several scientifically-supported “facts” about organic farming. According to the OTA, organic agriculture is as efficient, economical and productive as conventional agriculture, and is better for the soil, the environment, and human health. “It is simply inaccurate to say that organic crops have lower or less consistent yields than their chemically intensive conventional counterparts,” the organization said. In fact, OTA said, as the planet changes and population grows, “organic is an integral part of the long-term solution to global food security.”
