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