Frost, David; Ardeshir, Danny and Davies, Owen (2005) The environmental and socio-economic impacts of organic farming in Wales. Poster at: Researching Sustainable Systems - International Scientific Conference on Organic Agriculture, Adelaide, Australia, September 21-23, 2005. [Unpublished]
Limited to [Depositor and staff only]
The scientific basis of organic agriculture’s role in benefiting health, the environment and agricultural communities has been the subject of considerable debate. In Wales, a three-year monitoring study found evidence of the compatibility of organic farming with environmental conservation. The study also found a positive attitude towards production issues among organic farmers, but increasing concerns about marketing and profitability.
