A reasonable argument for blending organic and conventional farming

Christie Wilcox wrote, in 2011, that organic farming is not better than conventional. I think it makes a reasonable case, and one that I’ve been on board with for some time.

The issue that I have and one reason I prefer organics and non-GMO: many conventional foods have preservatives or other artificial ingredients that may not be so great over the long term, and many GMOs have been modified so they can use Roundup. I’m not against GMOs because they’re modified, but rather we don’t know what they modified the plants for. As pointed out in the article above, some GMOs are better for the environment or nutritionally superior.
