Effects of organic and conventional growth systems on the content of flavonoids in onions and phenolic acids in carrots and potatoes.
TLDR
On the basis of the present study carried out under well-controlled conditions, it cannot be concluded that organically grown onions, carrots, and potatoes generally have higher contents of health-promoting secondary metabolites in comparison with the conventionally cultivated ones.
Phytochemical phenolics in organically grown vegetables.
TLDR
Although organic production method alone did not enhance biosynthesis of phytochemicals in lettuce and collards, the organic system provided an increased opportunity for insect attack, resulting in a higher level of total phenolic agents in pac choi.
