Because of this, it is important to have seed banks, to save your own seeds and to get new ones from other organic gardeners. Experience shows us that the yield can be even greater by practicing biologic agriculture, and, of course, the produce obtained is much more flavorful and healthy for the earth and you. Subsidies One problem associated with conventional agriculture is related to subsidies. Producing a ton of wheat does not cost the same in a wealthy country as it does in a poor country. Farmers need to earn a lot more money in the first world, and if the market worked freely, industries would buy from poor countries where the price is much lower.

Far from contributing to solving the problems of hunger, therefore, genetically modified crops and the monopoly on seeds via patents are a threat to sustainable agriculture, our health, and food security for many populations. Ecologists in Action An alternative The disappearance of subsidies would leave growers with only one alternative: the production of quality, organic products. Consumers are increasingly more health-conscious and aware of the dangers of manipulated foods. Industrial agriculture has no qualms about the use of herbicides and pesticides.

These failures indicate that mechanization is ineffective and uneconomical. Let’s look at a real case: Recently, the University of Florida developed, for mechanical harvest, a salad tomato whose characteristics make it optimal for the harvester: thick lining, hard pulp, and skin that does not break. This is perhaps a little tough for the consumer, but you can’t please everyone. The use of this tomato will eliminate thousands of jobs in Florida alone, but in some ways that is an advantage, since machines don’t create the same conflicts.
