There's a great study on Live Science that shows how organic farming produce just as high, and in some cases higher, yields than industrial agriculture. The study debunks the myth that industrial agriculture is more efficient in short term and especially long term production. Over time, the quality of the soil that is preserved by sustainable, organic methods actually increases the yield in comparison to industrial practices.
The only benefit to industrial practices is the savings in labor and the convenience, which both have tremendous costs in damage to the environment. It's an enlightening study, and a quick, informative read.
