A New Briefing Paper From the Oakland Institute Examines the Productivity of Ecological & Organic Agriculture

Is Ecological Agriculture Productive?

A key question that is often asked about ecological agriculture, including organic agriculture, is whether it can be productive enough to meet the world's food needs. While many agree that ecological agriculture is desirable from an environmental and social point of view, fears remain that ecological and organic agriculture produces low yields.

This briefing paper by Senior Fellow
Lim Li Ching summarizes some of the available evidence to demystify the productivity debate and demonstrate that ecological agriculture is indeed productive, especially so in developing countries.
