On December 1st, KRGV News interviewed me at my orchard on organic farming and the water situation this year. It was a good little interview and you can see some of my orange crops. The interview can be seen on News 5′s website.

Here is a graphic that I used in my powerpoint presentation that goes over the cycle relating to organic farming and how various elements relate to one another in the environment.
Hopefully this will provide you with more information on how organic farming works to keep the balance of nature. The practice has a number of things that it has going for it that helps the environment and also us maintain our health and well-being.
- Maintains soil life
- Reduced water pollution
- Food taste
- Crops are drought tolerant
- Nutritional quality
- Increased micronutrients
