Organic FoodsBook - 2008
The Organic Farming Research Foundation defines organic food as food that is grown through agricultural systems that do not use genetically modified seeds, synthetic pesticides, or fertilizers. Organic farming helps the environment by benefiting water quality, soil health, and biodiversity. The top selling organic products are apples, lettuce, and grapes. This relevant and timely edition discusses organic and natural foods, describing what they are, how they are grown, where they are sold, and their future production. Readers will be inspired to think critically about organic food and how its production and demand impacts their peers and community.
