Life of Soil
Soil comparison of organically farmed soil and conventionally farmed soil at the Rodale Institute near Kutztown, Pennsylvania. The soil on the left is from a test plot that has been farmed organically for 30 years. Soil at right is conventionally farmed soil from a same test field. Organically farmed soil has good structure and holds water and its shape. Conventionally farmed soil has almost no structure and falls apart in water.
