Healthy, robust roots can lead to more nutrient rich crops

Healthy, robust roots can lead to more nutrient rich crops

Organic wheat crops can be more nutrient rich* – they more often rely on their own natural defenses rather than synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Organic farming methods can increase concentrations of antioxidants in vegetables, fruits, grains, and dairy products, and in this way help people elevate their daily antioxidant intake without a proportional rise in calories.

*Based on average results of multiple studies. See Organic Center’s Antioxidant Report here.
