"Crop yields, on average, were 20 per cent lower using organic methods, but they required 56 per cent less energy per unit of yield. Organic plots also had 40 per cent greater colonization by fungi that help plants absorb nutrients, three times as many earthworms and twice as many pest-eating spiders."
