Using organic farming methods can arguably also lower the water-use footprint by that would otherwise be negatively affected by polluted runoff. That said, not all organic farming methods reduce the amount of water used, so conservation-minded farmers should carefully consider the options.
Water recycling is far less expensive when a farmer doesn’t have to treat the water before reusing it. Organic farming methods that reduce or eliminate the use of chemicals are yet another way for farmers to conserve water by taking out a costly step in the recycling process.
