Statistics on Organic Agriculture
Markets & Prices
A custom-generated report in Excel compiles weekly market prices for organic fruit and vegetables over a one year time period (week ending 6/13/09 to week ending 6/12/2010) for terminal produce markets in 13 US cities. The report includes all organic fruit and vegetable commodities (including some fresh herbs, but excluding ornamentals) and was generated using the interactive USDA-AMS Fruit and Vegetable Market News Portal.
To access the portal go to http://marketnews.usda.gov/portal/fv . Here you can find weekly National Fruit and Vegetable Organic Summary reports on pricing and movement or generate custom reports by commodity and/or terminal.

Organic farmgate and wholesale prices
The USDA Economic Research Service (ERS) has been tracking organic farming acreage and organic prices for several years to calculate the extent of certified organic farmland acreage and livestock in the United States. This link includes: 1) monthly organic and conventional farmgate prices for broccoli and carrots; 2) monthly organic and conventional wholesale prices for broccoli, carrots, and mesclun mix; and 3) a limited set of organic prices (and corresponding conventional prices) for other fruits and vegetables from the Boston and San Francisco wholesale markets.
