Abstract

Global food security problem has raised concerns on the best agricultural practices that will stand the test of time to replace the already failing conventional agriculture. Yields are reportedly decreasing despite the increasing use of inputs. To solve this problem, researches have revealed that organic agriculture can get the needed results in more sustainable manner. The impacts of organic production up-scaled to regional and global levels give an initial quantification of the potential extent of changes that large scale conversion might induce.
