Tibetan Organic

Tahne posts some news from Tibet about organic farming:

The farmers who switched over to organic farming reported an average increase in yield of 35 percent as compared to those who continued to use chemical fertilizers.

This mirrors what I have read in the past about switching to organic in developing countries.

  • Thanks for the cross posting mate, yeah I thought this news was timely with all the talk about GM on your blog…..its interesting to note that the Tibetans are saying that they have an increase in yield with organic farming, and that is what the GM companies are trying to sell their product as doing….yet figures show that so far that isnt the case for GM, they actually can create a drop in yield….and you have all the problems associated with it, its just crazy

    mother earth, will she ever forgive us????

    Love spiral girl
