Organic agriculture could feed the world, but will it? A state of Otopia, an organic Utopia of 100% organic food and organic agriculture, is a dream, or is it a pipe-dream? And if a dream, then when might it manifest? Two scenarios are presented, extrapolating from the rate of growth of the organics sector achieved over the past decade. Under a geometric rate of growth, Otopia could be achieved in 39 years, whereas under an arithmetic rate of growth, Otopia would take 544 years to be achieved.
