Organic Farming Movement (Agrocology)

Groups are forming around the organic farming movement, that suggest that the corporate or industrial style farming is destroying our soils[1] and creating problems like green house gasses. The organic farming movement thinks that it’s possible to regenerate our soils and create sustainable farming practices. Some, like @LA_CHEFs feel that this style of farming is particularly suited to small businesses, and even individual farmers that might exist in many poorer nations; but reluctantly accept that corporations and big business could operate organic style farms that will regenerate the soils also (by possibly using costly automation[2] to reduce labor costs).

This following infographic is headed agroecology, but it can also apply to organic farming:
