Organic farming and sustainable development

With this expression predicted the development of the coming years, as part of the XI Delivery Awards Andres Nunez de Prado to Research in Organic Agriculture.

With regard to future market for organic products at European level, stated that "European consumers increasingly want something of higher quality and certainly organic products that are found in Andalusia."

The presentation was awarded the Andres Nunez de Prado to Research in Organic Production of this eleventh edition, which has been on Organic Farming in the Hills of Public Natural Park of Grazalema, plus a special mention to the work “Eficacia” to help soil with organic matter in the control of fusarium wilt of carnation on the northwest coast of Cadiz.

Wow. This is so incredibly inspiring to hear. Here in the states, farming with pesticides, chemicals and GMO's are so strongly subsidized by the government that you can hardly afford to live off purely organic products. I'd say organic costs at least double what "convetional" farm products do. And yes...sustainable farming is an inevitable future for farming. Let's hope we get it together soon in the states!
