Survey of Navsari district comprises major horticultural crops of mango and sapota. In the present study 30 farmers were surveyed each from organic and conventional farming system. Nearly 65.9% and 73.1% land of organic and conventional farming system were covered by horticultural crops, respectively. Area of mix farming under organic and conventional farming was 97% and 70%, respectively. Less number of farmers adopted mono cropping in organic farming as compared to conventional farming. The yield of paddy, sugarcane, green gram, banana, brinjal, okra and bottle gourd under organic farming were lower than conventional farming. However, yield of mango (9545 kg ha-1) and sapota (15131 kg ha-1) were higher under organic farming. Yield stability index of organic farming was lower (0.30) than conventional farming (0.56).
