RODALE Institute: The Farming Systems Trial celebrating 30 years

The hallmark of a truly sustainable system is its ability to regenerate itself. When it comes
to farming, the key to sustainable agriculture is healthy soil, since this is the foundation
for present and future growth.
Organic farming is far superior to conventional systems when it comes to building,
maintaining and replenishing the health of the soil. For soil health alone, organic
agriculture is more sustainable than conventional. When one also considers yields,
economic viability, energy usage, and human health
, it’s clear that organic farming
is sustainable, while current conventional practices are not.
As we face uncertain and extreme weather patterns, growing scarcity and expense of oil,
lack of water, and a growing population, we will require farming systems that can adapt,
withstand or even mitigate these problems while producing healthy, nourishing food.
After 30 years of side-by-side research in our Farming Systems Trial (FST) , Rodale
Institute has demonstrated that organic farming is better equipped to feed us now and
well into the ever changing future.
