2020 New Year's Resolution #2: Foster biodiversity. Wake up with organic coffee!
It is well known that organic farming practices increase important and beneficial biodiversity. A new study published in 2019 shows this is especially true for coffee. Both above and below ground insect populations were compared in conventional versus organic coffee farms in Brazil, the world’s second-largest coffee producing country. The study showed the diversity of soil insects, earthworms and above ground insects was much greater in organic coffee farms.
