Would you have known? With organic farming, farmers not only make their farms less dependent on expensive and climate-damaging external factors such as mineral nitrogen fertilizers, but they also make an effective contribution to protecting the environment, climate, biodiversity and soil. Through sustainable land management, organic farms avoid 800 euros in climate pollution costs per year – and per hectare!
The BÖLW industry report goes on to say: “The non-sustainable polluters of environmental costs in agriculture, which according to the ZKL final report amount to EUR 90 billion annually, produce the supposedly cheapest products. In the end, this harms everyone, nature, animals and us humans. Food should be safe, independent and environmentally friendly – and this is possible with more organic food. Because more organic means more regenerative and grandchild-friendly cultivation.
