The popularity of organic farming is gradually increasing and now organic agriculture is practiced in almost all states of the country, and its share of agricultural land and farms is growing. The study was conducted to find out the significant difference between profile characteristics of organic and inorganic farmers. A total of 240 farmers comprising 120 organic farmers and 120 inorganic farmers drawn randomly from 8 taluks of four districts in Tamil Nadu, namely, Kancheepuram, Erode, Dindigul and Karur constituted the sample for the study. Significant differences were observed between organic and inorganic farmers in the profile characteristics like education, livestock possession, extension orientation, mass media exposure, economic motivation, risk orientation, environmental orientation, level of aspiration and belief in organic farming at 1 per cent level.
