Organic Prices

ERS organic price tables are based on Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) Market News and other data sources, and show monthly and annual prices over a period of years for major commodities. These tables are useful for examining price trends over time, as well as for comparing organic and conventional prices. The latest organic wholesale prices are always available on the AMS Market News website.
