Wpływ rolnictwa ekologicznego na środowisko w koncepcji rozwoju zrównoważonego

Modern agriculture has reached tremendous productivity and effectiveness; however, it very often happens that intensive production causes serious environmental concerns and compromises the quality of final product. Due to increasing consumer awareness, people more frequently choose organic products as a healthier and safer option. Nevertheless, organic farming is not only about the production of superior quality food, it is also a method of environmental protection and sustainable resource management. Water, soil, biological diversity and landscape are just some of the natural components that are being constantly transformed as a result of farming. Conventional farming often is the main cause of environment degradation that leads to serious consequences. Therefore, it is vital to underline the importance of organic farming in the protection of environment and natural resources that are essential for humans in the process of food production. The main aim of this article is to evaluate the effect of organic farming on water, soil, biological diversity as well as landscape. Moreover, this research is also an attempt at implanting organic agriculture within the concept of sustainable development.
