6. The stanford study you quote is biased considering STANFORD RECIEVES MONSANTO FUNDING

 

Stanford study cast into doubt due to recieving monetary support from Monsanto.

Other research shows that Organic actually can give us higher yields.

Research Confirms Organic Farming Produces Higher Yields
A spate of new research has shown that organic farming actually yields better results than modern techniques when evaluated more holistically. A series of peer-reviewed papers published by the international journal, Nature, showed that organic methods for growing rice, corn and wheat all produced significantly higher yields—and at less the cost—than monoculture farms. And research at England’s Essex University has shown that farmers in India, Kenya, Brazil, Guatemala and Honduras have doubled or tripled their yields by switching to organic agriculture. Cuban farmers, who cannot access fertilizers and pesticides due to the U.S. embargo, have also realized greater yields by taking up organic farming.
