Because organic agriculture respects the balance of microorganisms in the soil, organic producers use composted manure and other natural materials, as well as crop rotation, to help improve soil fertility, rather than petroleum-based synthetic fertilizers that can result in an overabundance of nitrogen and phosphorous in the ground. As a result, organic practices help protect ground water supplies and avoid runoff of chemicals that can cause "dead zones" in larger bodies of water.


Read on to discover the many ways in which organic practices benefit the aquatic environment and help to keep our water supply clean.
