Research Studies
Statement of the Problem
Publix GreenWise is having supply problems in its effort to offer organic versions of its popular
store brand frozen vegetables.
Research Method and Sources of Information
When examining the local farming habits, it is discovered that many area farmer do not know the
requirements in order to have their produce certified as organic under UDSA regulations. The
sources where area farmer in a 50 mile radius of GreenWise locations.
Nature of Data to Be Gathered and Analyzed
I did a poll to the farming community by sending calling local commercial farmers registered
with the USDA. I then interviewed about 30% of farmers directly. I separated the results by
those who did not desire to farm organically and those who did, but where not currently.
Hypothesis or Hypotheses to Be Proved or Disproved
Many area farmers would like to participate in organic farming but do no currently know the
necessary steps needed to have their farms and produce certified for organic production.
Assisting the farmers through education and training would help reduce future supply
