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...

The prevalence of synthetic nitrogen-fertilizer use and its negative impacts on the environment are critical considerations in conversations about the future of sustainable and regenerative...

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...

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...

A study from Environmental Pollution compared pesticide residues in soil from organic and conventional farms across the European Union and found that organic farms had up to 90% fewer residues....

A recent study published in the journal Biologia adds to the growing body of evidence showing organic farming improves microbial conditions in the soil that, in turn, increases disease control and...

Supporting biodiversity is not only a tenet of organic farming, but the ecosystem services that biodiversity can provide to farmers is also relied upon for...

Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are beneficial soil fungi that provide important services to plant and soil health by increasing nutrient cycling, and improving soil structure and...
