    There are a lot of organic grains being imported now, $7-8 for corn is realistic right now.
    What does it cost to grow organic corn ? Guess no fertiliser or weed sprays the yield must be down a bit ??

    Cost is difficult to nail down, lots of variables. You still have to use fertilizer. Yields vary a lot also, some yields as good or better than conventional but some won't. My average corn yield is around 120 bu.
