How Do Organic Farming Practices Save Water?

This World Water Day is about accelerating change to solve the water and sanitation crisis. And because water affects us all, we need everyone to take action. That means you!

Organic farming is a great way to save water and protect the environment. Organic farming practices are based on the principle of sustainability, which means our certified organic growers are working to maintain and improve the soil’s fertility and quality without using synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. As a result, organic farming can help reduce water pollution and conserve water resources.

One of the key ways organic farming saves water is by reducing soil erosion. Soil erosion can be caused by excessive tilling and the use of synthetic chemicals, which can wash away topsoil and nutrients essential to plant growth.

Organic farming also helps improve water infiltration. By increasing the amount of organic matter in the soil, organic farming can improve the soil’s ability to absorb and retain water. This means the water that does enter the soil can be used more efficiently by plants and crops, helping to conserve water.

Finally, organic farming can help protect water resources from pollution. By avoiding synthetic chemicals, organic farmers help reduce the number of pollutants leaching into nearby waterways. This improves the water quality of rivers and streams and helps protect aquatic ecosystems.

Overall, water conservation and environmental protection are important benefits of organic farming. Organic farming can aid in lowering soil erosion, increasing water infiltration, and protecting water resources from contamination by eliminating synthetic chemicals and enhancing soil quality.
