In California, organic acreage increased by 60% and sales of organic commodities increased by 110% between 1992 and 1997. The rate of growth in the organic industry does not reveal the dynamic nature of California's organic agriculture. In this chapter, we explore the characteristics of farmers entering and exiting the organic market in California. In so doing, our analysis provides insight into the impact of policy and growth on the future composition of the organic industry.
