Organic farming mitigates climate change

Long-term organically farmed soils emit 40 percent less greenhouse gases per hectare than conventionally farmed soils. The amount of emitted gas is also lower per ton of yield or - in the case of maize cultivation - equal. This is the result of a study carried out as part of the DOK long-term field experiment. The study was led by Dr Andreas Gattinger, a former FiBL researcher, who is now a professor at Giessen University. The results were recently published in the online edition of the scientific journal "Scientific Reports".
