The full 32-page report is available online and covers current research on the environmental impacts of agricultural practices commonly used in organic farming in the areas of soil health, water quality, biodiversity, native pollinators, and climate change mitigation. It discusses barriers that constrain adoption of organic practices on farms and provides recommendations to increase the adoption of sustainable farming practices on organic and transitioning farms.
