New Study Shows Organic Farmers Make Considerably More Money Than Their “Conventional” Counterparts
By Nick Meyer - June 5, 2015
According to a new study from the Washington State University Professor of Entomology David Crowder, organic farming is far more profitable these days than “conventional” farming.
Results from his latest meta-analysis of more than 120 studies on the economics of organic farming found that organic farmers typically earn between 22% and 35% more than conventional farmers.
“Public perception is that if you’re doing organic, maybe you’re sacrificing financial sustainability, but we show that’s really not the case,” says Crowder in this article from Independent Science News. “If you’re getting a 30% margin on your competitors, that would be the envy of almost any business.”
