Description of the measure

The yields in organic farming are more stable and the agronomic practices are more adapted to face climate change

Comments on sustainability

Organic farming is based on traditional varieties more adapted to climate change. Organic fertilizers allow better soils & better structure, so water retention increases and soil erosion decreases reducing vulnerability to droughts and intense rainfall. It increases considerably biodiversity. No use of chemicals fertilizers and pesticides means economic savings. Technical assessment and administration support is needed
