Lloyd 1 S. Lloyd Professor Wolf RS 301 Fall, 2009 Reaction Paper 5: Food and Agriculture I chose to read Lim Li Ching’s report titled “Organic Agriculture Fights Back,” which was published in 2003 by the Institute of Science in Society. This was a simple choice because Ching’s report spoke directly to my group’s presentation topic; organic farming. I was looking for information that would help me to better understand organic farming as a significant process that influences and affects the health of our fragile and ailing ecosystem. With this goal in mind, I considered the defensive nature of Ching’s report, which utilizes a collection of research studies and specific geological examples to support the argument that organic farming not only produces comparable yields, but in some instances offers marked improvement over conventional farming techniques. My initial reaction to this report was mildly optimistic. I appreciated the variety of supportive concepts and practices, but felt the analysis was cursory and biased. Don’t get me wrong; I was not totally disappointed, I just set myself up with an unrealistic expectation.
