I read it, and it sounds plausible to me but I'm not a farming expert.
I have read that deforestation of amazon rainforest for farmland usually results in a dead farm after a number of years, and this may be why...maybe
the land is being abused, but we need our rainforests also.
The one thing I've noticed is that organically grown produce seems to cost more...I'm not sure exactly why...but if this article is right about
non-organic farming methods being so destructive, you would think better methods like organic farming would be more economically competitive.
