Product Price Index To Help Organic Growers

posted on January 24, 2003

Organic Price Index.

A nonprofit organic research organization is creating a wholesale price index for organic farmers. The index will be on a Web site to help organic farmers find out the weekly going price for naturally-grown products in their region.

The 55-year old Rodale Institute created the index by taking the average price paid to certified organic farmers on the East and West coasts.

The Web site is expected to be up and running next month.
