Reduce pesticide intake and ensure health


Chemical pesticides have always been the magic weapon of increasing production and increment in modern agriculture. According to research data, China's annual chemical pesticide use area is not less than 280 million hectares, and the amount of application reaches 500000 to 600000 tons, of which about 80% of chemical pesticides directly enter the environment.

Indeed, chemical pesticides sprayed in traditional agriculture will gradually diffuse into the atmosphere, soil and water after entering the environment, causing pollution to our ecological environment. It will also gather in different organisms along with the transmission of the food chain, which will eventually lead to problems in the human body.

In agricultural production, these pesticides need to be sprayed into the farmland by farmers through tools or machines. Therefore, farmers are in close contact with pesticides when spraying.

If they do not wear professional protective equipment, it is easy for farmers to inhale the sprayed chemical pesticides. These pesticides are more harmful than food with pesticide residues.


To develop organic agriculture is to plant crops without using chemical fertilizers, chemical pesticides and pesticides.

For example, for pest control and weeding, farmers who grow organic crops will avoid using synthetic pesticides and chemical herbicides, but use physical and biological methods to prevent and control mold, insects and diseases that damage crops.

This can effectively avoid the use of chemical pesticides, help farmers exposed to a large number of pesticides, and reduce the time of contact with pesticides. Once farmers' exposure to pesticides is reduced, their intake will be reduced, and farmers' bodies will not be damaged by pesticides.

Therefore, compared with conventional agriculture, the development of organic agriculture can better protect the health of farmers' friends.


Increase farmers' income


More and more people are unwilling to be farmers. Why?

As we all know, what farmers do is "face the loess and back the sky". They work with the land every day. The work they do is not only hard and tired, but also earn little. In big cities, as long as you are down-to-earth and willing to work, you can easily earn more than doing farm work, so now young people are more and more unwilling to stay in their hometown and guard the three-acre land.

Moreover, farmers produce all necessities of life, and prices will be strictly controlled and will not rise too much or too fast. Therefore, it is difficult for farmers' income to increase significantly.


Organic agriculture, as an agriculture that pays more attention to ecological health and food safety, produces organic agricultural products in a healthy, green and environmentally friendly way with high safety and quality. Today, the food safety problem is so serious that the selling price of such organic agricultural products will naturally be several times higher than that of ordinary agricultural products.

In addition, organic agricultural products, with their high safety and quality, have won the favor of many consumers, triggered a huge consumption trend of organic food, and attracted more and more people to buy.

Therefore, if the farmers who produce ordinary agricultural products and the farmers who produce organic agricultural products can obtain higher income by selling agricultural products, it is natural that the farmers who produce organic agricultural products can obtain higher income.

Therefore, to develop organic agriculture and produce healthy and safe organic agricultural products is also to help farmers improve their income and obtain more disposable funds.


Improve the growth environment of future generations


For consumers, when purchasing food, they will pay special attention to pesticide residues and try to avoid food with pesticide residues. However, some studies have proved that the people with the greatest risk of pesticide exposure are not the people who eat, but the people who plant.

Indeed, farmers who grow crops have closer contact with pesticides.

According to the statistics of the World Health Organization, there are about 3 million people suffering from acute pesticide poisoning every year, including 250000 deaths. In addition to those who commit suicide by using pesticides, most of these people occur among workers who produce pesticides and farmers who spray pesticides.
