Investing in Organic Production: Economics of Transition

Transitioning to organic requires upfront investments in soil building and organic weed management. Organic price premiums may cover some of these initial expenditures, but the returns on these investments are typically delayed until the end of the three-year transition period. This webinar explores the economics of transitioning to organic and report on strategies that are being used to help growers get over the economic hurdle of the transition period.
