Impacts of Organic Farming on the Rural Economy

This project will explore the key hypothesis that organic farming provides an additional benefit to the rural economy over and above conventional agriculture. The research will explore the extent to which organic farming gives rise to greater economic and socio-economic linkages within rural economies (and the local economy) and, as a result, contributes to rural development.
