It is no secret that more and more consumers are concerned about the chemical/conventional farming practices used by the majority of the agriculture industry. Consumers are increasingly willing to pay premium prices for non-GMO, organic produce. And their are smaller companies with inputs that have been proven to increase crop production, not decrease the yield like it is so often expected when using organic practices. And the developing countries are concerned about the price of the Green Revolution--and Monsanto's drive to spread chemicals. Sure, they increased yields--but if you had a choice between organic and increased yield and chemical and increased yield, what would you choose?
