Advantages and Disadvantages of Organic Farming?

Answer

Organic farming has a large advantage over traditional farming in that no chemicals are used in the process of planting or caring for the produce. It is the most natural way to deliver fruits and vegetables to consumers and keeps the items in their most nutritious state. A disadvantage of organic farming is that it is more expensive, since the fields must be tended to more often to keep bugs and parasites away from the plants. In some cases, the products do not grow as large and do cost more at the grocery store due to the extra care being needed.
