Apple growers indicated a variety of reasons for choosing to
farm organically in 2007, including prospects for increased farm
income. Conventional apple yields were higher than organic yields
in 2007. However, organic apples-whether for fresh consumption or
processing-commanded substantial price premiums. Grower prices for
organic apples were more than double conventional prices for fresh
apples and nearly double conventional prices for processing apples.
