Organic farms are a bonus for wildlife, says report

Date Published: 03/08/2005

A report by leading wildlife research groups has concluded that organic farming brings clear benefits to biodiversity in the British countryside.

Scientists from leading UK institutions have shown conclusively that organic farms are better than non-organic for a range of wildlife including wild flowers, beetles, spiders, birds and bats.

The survey has been carried out over five years, across the country, and has been carefully designed to cover a wide range of wildlife on 160 farms.
