Tilling the land without pesticides and herbicides and GMO seeds can be done profitably.
No it can't.
Have you ever raised a single plant?
How about farmed?
There's at least a dozen organic commercial farms in my area that prove other wise. And yes, I've grown vegetables for 20 years since I was old enough to understand it. The important difference between what you probably experienced and what they do is they are not buying their seeds from just anywhere and are using improved cultivars that have been selected to resist various diseases (which before someone chimes in, "That's GMO!", as always happens in discussions like this, they are not. GMO strictly refers to transgenic organisms where DNA is removed from the nucleus of one organism and inserted into another, never things developed by breeding).
No they don't.
They don't kill anything in the cultivation of the plant? Nothing?
Cause that is amazing. The need to get published for violating Newton's Eighth Law of Motion.
Who knew you could have your seed and eat it too?
Is this about 'pesticides' and 'herbicides' being techniques, not just chemicals, as you were talking about in another post above? Actually those are defined as substances ('chemicals') and not practices, killing a pest is not 'pesticide' even though it could look that way.
It certainly is.
Want to crack open the etymology of pesticide
What about that crazy tobacco that killed those crazy critters that attacked the tomato plants.
See, before you say "tomato" I was planting what you kidz call "heirloom" and "native" seeds, cause they were more resistant. We just said the latter. Dumb country people just using what grew the easiest.
Then the kidz argued whether using tobacco spray was organic or not.
Please. You kill stuff to grow stuff. We can argue over the hows and wherefores, but don't sell me a load of nonsense. Or start lecturing me on of all thing what a "chemical" is.
