Transcript of Advantages of Inorganic Farming

Advantages of Inorganic Farming
There are larger amounts of agriculture due to inorganic farming.
Although organic farming is better for the environment, inorganic farming produces high amounts of agriculture and is overall more efficient than organic farming.
"Today, the Average North American farmer produces enough food to feed 80 people whereas in 1950, the average farmer produced enough to feed only 14 people." (Topic 2 Information Handout)
Inorganic Farming is more efficient.
Since organic farming is costly, most farmers can't afford it. Due to the fact that most farmers use inorganic products, there's not as many organic crops being produced. Also, most consumers can't afford organic products because of the high prices.
In Conclusion, inorganic farming produces more crops, is more effective, cheaper, and by far more efficient than organic farming.
What is "Inorganic Farming"?
Inorganic Farming is also known as conventional farming.
Inorganic farming is growing agriculture by using synthetic products such as pesticides and chemicals.
Examples of pesticides include insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides.
Inorganic farming is very time efficient. Farmers can cover a large area of land all at once in a very short period of time.
Organic Produce is Expensive and Limited.
