It's a conundrum that plagues our wallets, morals and stomaches: Organic vs. conventional agriculture.
An article posted on Grist yesterday attempted to set the record straight via a study conducted by a Washington State University professor on organically and conventionally grown strawberries. Although the study only focuses on one fruit, it offers a lot of useful information that can be related to growing other produce.
The two year study was conducted on strawberries grown on 13 conventional and 13 organic fields. The researchers analyzed soil properties, soil DNA, taste of the fruit and nutritional quality.
The results? Organic strawberries reigned supreme.
