Increasing organic yields: risks and benefits – a new study

In conventional agriculture, increases in yields are largely due to increased use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers and thus have come with a number of negative side effects. More recently, there has been a push to increase yields in organic agriculture but there has been little assessment of potential unintended consequences. A new study recently published in the journal Agronomy for Sustainable Development has tried to assess the potential costs and benefits associated with increasing yields within organic agriculture.
