Chemical farming is the norm, but it does not have to be.

Chemical farming is the norm, but it does not have to be. There are now more options than ever before that will allow farmers a higher yield without having to lace the soil with chemicals and then treat the crops as well. Knowing about these options can make a world of difference and can help farmers and consumers alike to get a healthier and safer product overall.

Chemical- and antibiotic-laced farming has certainly become the norm over the past few decades, and decreasing soil quality has forced farmers and large companies to find other ways to produce a large crop yield. That being said, it does not have to be the norm any longer. The South Australian agriculture minister, Leon Bignell cites a yield increase of up to 300%, a very impressive boast, without the use of GMOs, an even more impressive claim.

The program is set to improve the quality of the soil without the use of chemicals. If this is possible, the produce that is being put out for the public would be healthier and safer, and more abundant according to the study. The main change in the program is of course to improve the quality of the land and also to provide seeds that have not been genetically modified so that the end product is more pure.
