  • According to Our World in Data[1], "Across all food types, there is no clear winner when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions. Results vary strongly depending on food type." Clark and Tilman (2017) published a meta-analysis of results of published organic-conventional comparisons across 742 agricultural systems over 90 unique foods. According to the meta-analysis:
    • Organic farming of fruits and pulses tends to produce less greenhouse gases than conventional methods.
    • Organic farming of cereals, vegetables, and animal products tends to produce more greenhouse gases than conventional methods.
