Organic farmers say they help can reduce greenhouse gas problems

By ABC Rural

Organic agriculture leaders say they hold the key to solving the world's greenhouse gas problem.

United States research suggests that if the five billion hectares of global farmland were converted to organic systems, nearly all of the world's carbon-dioxide output could be sequestered.

Organic Federation of Australia chairman André Leu says their message has been well received by many governments at Copenhagen.

"We're in the process of having discussions with the USA, their Department of Agriculture, Brazil, i've got meetings with them tomorrow," he says.

"The African countries, the African Union, countries like Egypt have been very active in promoting it."
