A study in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Engineering determined that using organic fertilizer produced from local sources of agricultural waste and manure results in comparable yields of...

A recent study published in Agronomy Journal found that using perennial living mulches can regenerate soil health faster and with less cost than using annual cover crops. There are many benefits...

A new review published in the journal Agronomy compiles scientific evidence showing that using recycled animal waste to manage fertility for food production is important for boosting in yields in...

Using biological soil amendments in organic farming is the most effective way to store carbon in the ground to fight climate change and boost soil health for better food production. And since...

A recent study from Geoderma shows that over time, organic yields can match and even exceed those of conventional when built up soil health and biodiversity lead to better crop production. This...

Incorporating cover crops into crop rotations is known to have many benefits to soil health and ultimately crop yield. However, they are often prevented from flowering--which would support...

Organic farmers rely on natural predators to help control their crop pests rather than using chemical sprays. A new study published in the Journal of Applied Ecology found that using organic...

Soil health hinges on robust communities of soil bacteria and insects. However, a recent science review published in Frontiers in Environmental Science shows that pesticides sprayed both above and...

When the heavy metal cadmium is consumed in excess, it can have a negative impact on kidneys, the liver and bone density, particularly for children who are more sensitive to lower concentrations...

A recent study published in the journal Applied Soil Ecology found that after only 1-2 years after transitioning from conventional to organic practices, important soil invertebrate communities can...
