    Hello Ayesha, Despite the many environmental benefits of organic farming it’s better for soil, water, air and climatic changes; it’s often written off as economically unfeasible for farmers. That’s largely because the same patch of land will produce less food when farmed without the synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and other tools used in conventional agriculture. But according to a new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, organic farmers can make more money than their conventional counterparts, even with their lower yields, because consumers are willing to pay more for organic foods. Therefore organic farming is profitable to many farmers who are practicing organic agriculture. Each year the fertility of soil, Nutritional value and biodiversity increases and you have to count that also.I hope this satisfies your query.
