China competes in organic produce market

The organic export market is set to become more competitive, with China now a dominant force.

Australian National University research scientist, John Paull, says the cost of organic produce is likely to reduce significantly.

And he says Australia’s conventional farmers are likely to be the worst affected.

“China can produce organic food cheaper than Australian farmers produce chemical food”, he says.

“I think this is a wake up call; if this colossus that is China, is moving towards organic agriculture, why would we in Australia stick with chemical agriculture, when China is moving in the other direction?”.
