Περιγραφή:

This study attempts to enrich the debate on the different forms of risk management strategies that are utilized by organic
farmers and to assess the internal dynamics within the organic farming community by examining the attitudes and
practices of these farmers. In particular, using a factor analysis, this study determines the attitudes of Greek farmers
toward risk management strategies and focuses on the differences in risk attitudes between existing organic farmers and
non-organic farmers. Second, using a probit analysis, this study characterizes the key factors that affect Greek farmers’
attitudes with respect to risk management strategies. The thorough presentation of this research study provides essential
information to policy-makers for understanding the factors that induce farmers to participate in organic agriculture.
Moreover, the analysis of the risk management strategies that organic farmers apply is expected to offer valuable insights
that will be critical for the timely introduction and efficient application of the forthcoming post-2013 Common
Agricultural Policy (CAP) measures.
