About this book

Based on papers presented at an OECD workshop in September 2002 in Washington DC, this book shows that organic agriculture is less stressful on the environment, but that its economic performance is mixed. The book also concludes that organic agriculture is disadvantaged by current support policies and that the proliferation of standards and labels may confuse consumers and inhibit trade.

Contents
