Fall Harvest: The Rise of Organic Agriculture

The demand for organic produce and staple products has never been greater. And, the agricultural industry has answered this call by ramping up organic farming efforts and promoting the advantages of all natural cultivation.

Transitioning conventional farms to organic plantations has been eased by the monetary implications, as well as the progressive ideologies that accompany organic production.

Lucrative Industry
Despite increasing competition which has actually lowered prices on organic groceries, the industry remains highly profitable. Organic purchases make up over 5% of US food sales, and this number continues to increase year over year. The revenue from organic products can sustain further price drops and continue to be a significant source of income for farmers.

In addition to the profitability, states have been offering incentives to farmers willing to evolve original production to organic growing methods. These grants cover the education needed and enables smaller farms to begin implementing natural techniques and eliminating chemical toxins. This has propelled many in the farming community to sustain a lucrative organic program.

Progressive Approach
It’s no secret (rather a touted credo by many) that “living organic” should become the norm for a more sustainable future. The harmful effects of pesticides used in agriculture has become a battle-cry for a society looking to ditch the GMOs and focus on natural production.

With an entire eco-system that can benefit from organic growing, we’ve witnessed an increase in reform over the last 10 years. The growth of organic farms has risen in response to health and environmental concerns stemming from the traditional use of chemicals. It is now viewed as a more progressive approach to domestic agriculture and is likely to continue this upward trend.

Sustainable Future
Organic growing has proven to increase soil quality and reduce toxins distributed into the environment. Buying natural products and supporting the organic movement has shown to bolster a healthier lifestyle.

In addition, by minimizing low-level compounds from chemically treated farmed products, we are less likely to expose future generations to harmful materials. For example, studies have shown that pesticides ingested by pregnant women can be exposed to babies in utero. Studies have also revealed that decades of pesticide usage has taken a toll on soil quality by diminishing nutrients and beneficial microbes from the earth.

Organic farming isn’t just about protecting ourselves from the effects of unnatural composites, it’s about safeguarding our environment for a more sustainable future.

Organic Plant Magic (OPM) is dedicated to the movement that supports natural growing techniques. That’s why we have developed an advanced instant compost tea that combines nutrient rich soil with trace minerals and Beneficial MicroOrganisms® to provide a more effective organic fertilizer.

As the demand for farm to table and natural foods gains in popularity, OPM aims to innovate and help larger farms, local growers, and even the individual looking to cultivate personal organic plantings faster. We champion on behalf of natural growing methods for tastier, healthier foods. And, we are proud to offer an all-natural, technologically advanced solution that remains a resource to the organic industry.
