The increasing preference of consumers for organic food products is a key factor driving the growth of the organic grain farming market.Enhanced performance and better quality of products have driven the growth of organic products in the last five years.

For instance, According to the research institute of organic agriculture (FiBL) 2020, globally, there are more than 70 million hectares of organic farmland.Also, the rising demand has motivated manufacturers to make organic food more accessible to mainstream markets.

For example, Woolworths and Coles supermarkets in Australia now sell a broader variety of organic produce, making it more convenient to purchase organic goods.

The internet of things (IoT)-enabled smart farming is a key trend in the organic grain farming market.To collect the crop health data and moisture level, the IoT-enabled devices and sensors are installed in the field and the farmers can view these data easily through their tablets and cell phones.

For example, the farmer can deploy sensors to start irrigation if the level of soil moisture drops. Fasal, founded in 2018, is an innovative artificial intelligence IoT platform that helps farming ecosystems in weather forecasting, irrigation management, soil disease and viral breakout prediction, real-time soil and crop condition alerts, pest management and crop disease management by using data science in combination with artificial intelligence.

The risks associated with the high cost of transition and uncertain market guarantee at the end of the transition period is a key factor hampering the growth of the organic grain farming market.The transition time for a farmer to switch to organic grain production is 36 months from the last prohibited product being used.

In the transition period, the farmer pays all the organic production costs but sell them to the traditional markets as they cannot be sold organically.So, the farmer may lose around $208,705 each year, with a cumulative deficit of $417,000 by year two.

The farmer can market grains for organic rates in the third year to a profit of $843,000, but it needs $417,000 in working capital to get out of years one and two. Therefore, the risks associated with the high cost of transition and uncertain market guarantee at the end of the transition period is expected to hinder the growth of the organic grain farming market.
