Though there is wide acceptance for the good things about organic farming why do most farmers still operate by industrialized agriculture?

In this paper some controversies also discussed about the objection raised against organic farming on the ground of productivity, cultivation, genetically modified crops, time and skills. This paper attempts to examine the environmental effects of organic farming on the bases of climate friendly, ecology friendly, etc. and some success stories and experiences.
