Organic food production is environmentally benign, better for animal welfare, has human health benefits and tastes better - or so say its proponents. Conversely, detractors allege that the rising global population cannot be fed without using artificial fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides, that the environmental impact is slight and manageable, and that ‘organic’ consumers are being duped by farmers. 

With a global market approaching £70 billion, there’s a lot at stake. Including some ‘blind taste tests’, the environmental science evidence behind organic farming will be reviewed, exploring facts and debunking a few myths.
