The potential for organic agriculture in Laos

Laos has a range of conditions which favor organic production for in-country consumption and export including: 1) the low external input systems presently used allows for easy conversion to an organic system, 2) Lao products have a reputation for having low levels of pesticide residues, 3) Hill environments offer opportunities for “out of season” fruit and vegetable production. Products with high potential include: forest products, rice, vegetables, coffee and fruits.
