Title: The economics of organic cereal-livestock farming in Australia revisited
Authors: Wynen, Els
Keywords: organic agriculture
farm management
Issue Date: 2002-02
Abstract: In 2001 a survey of five organic cereal-livestock farms was undertaken to assess the economics of organic broadacre farming in recent times. In the mid-1980s a similar study carried out in Eastern Australia found that organic farmers were doing as well as their conventionally farming counterparts. Under present conditions of input use and prices, productivity, output premiums and relative output prices, some organic farmers can be close in financial performance to conventional farmers interviewed. Those who have converted to organic management more recently seem to have a bit more of a struggle.
