Organic Farming!
by Rachel and Jeff

Organic farming prevents genetic resistance in pests, ecosystem disruption, persistence of pesticides, and the mobility of pesticides.

In the past, pesticides have caused a lot of problems, like in the Vietnam War.

There have also been huge disasters in the past caused by pesitcides such as the Bhopal Disaster.

Organic farming uses alternatives to pesticide and herbicide use like different cultivation methods, using biological or reproductive controls, pheromones, and quarantine.

All in all, organic farm has many advantages over using chemicals to guard produce and is not dangerous.
