[Video] Value and future prospects for organic cotton production

Description: Barcelona, 18 September 2011. Tobias Bandel from Soil & More, Netherlands, was one of the expert in the third panel of the Cotton Dialogues 2011. The panel discussed the issue of "Supporting sustainable growth". In this video, Tobias reflects on the outcome of the roundtable discussion. According to Tobias, organic is not a religion or just wishful thinking but it's actually the only logic way to produce food and cotton. Organic as of today is not yet fully sustainable but in a few years organic production will be cheaper than conventional production. This will shift organic from a niche market to mainstream.
