Recall my recent post on the advantages of organic agriculture. Note that I clearly admitted that Big Agra systems are economies of scale, which means that they are more efficient in some ways, specifically at overcoming system entropy. This means that, in some ways, Big Ag systems can be less harmful to the environment than decentralised organic farming. Having said this, I do not deny some advantages claimed by the following article, for Big Ag systems. However, in the global big picture, these advantages cost more than they save, for everyone concerned. ALSO - they are only temporary advantages.

So, the disadvantages outweigh these so-called advantages, in my learned opinion, especially when hi-technology can be used to improve organic agriculture. And, I have included a few other links below which similarly contradict the Big Ag claims. (The subject - the environmental and economic pros and cons of Big Ag versus Organic - requires a more lengthy, talky post, some day soon). Note that there are some questionable claims in this article, derived from what was probably a corporate-sponsored study, beginning with bullet-point three. Can't do a point-by-point right now. Please put on your critical hat.
