A University of Otago study has used ARGOS data:
The 15 studied farms were part of a larger research program led by the Agriculture Research Group on Sustainability (ARGOS) at the University of Otago (http://www.argos.org.nz). All organic farms included in the ARGOS research program complied with New Zealand’s organic certification standards (e.g. BioGro) and met the standards set by the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements.
