F"With the average yield ratios, we modeled the global food supply that could be grown organically on the current agricultural land base. Model estimates indicate that organic methods could produce enough food on a global per capita basis to sustain the current human population, and potentially an even larger population, without increasing the agricultural land base."Catherine Badgley, Jeremy Moghtader, Eileen Quintero, Emily Zakem, M.
