Economics and Efficiency of Organic Farming vis-Ã -vis Conventional Farming in India
The present paper focuses mainly on the issues like economics and efficiency of organic farming visÃ - vis conventional farming in India. Four states namely Gujarat, Maharashtra, Punjab and U.P were purposively selected for the present study. Similarly, four major crops i.e., cotton, sugarcane, paddy and wheat were chosen for comparison. A model based nonparametric Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) was used for analyzing the efficiency of the farming systems.
