Organic Foods Attract Consumers for the Wrong Reasons

Despite the merits of U.S. agriculture and food system, consumer concerns about food safety and environmental quality continue. These concerns have stimulated attention by both producers and consumers to organically grown foods.

Even so, many production and marketing problems prevail. No more than 3 percent of the nation's produce production is certified organic produce.
