Why this project: 

Organic agricultural producers in Australia pay research and development (R&D) levies, as do conventional farmers. Yet, organic growers feel that R&D expenditure relevant to their farming methods is not equivalent to their contributions. 

Project goals: 

R&D levies paid by organic producers are estimated for 2010-11 and 2015-16. 

Project outcome: 

Report detailing R&D levies paid by organic producers in 2015-16.

People involved: 

Dr Els Wynen, Agricultural Economist, Eco Landuse Systems.

Proposed start: 
March 2019
Proposed finish: 
October 2019
Project completed: 
November 2019
