Bean is the third most important food legume crop of the world after soybean and groundnuts; it provides an important source of dietary proteins, carbohydrates, minerals and fber essential in human nutrition worldwide. A high, per capita bean consumption of 13 to 40 kg yr-1 was observed in developing countries. In EU developed countries, market of the organic products is growing in average 10 % per annum, but this growth has not been followed by production growth and this is the chance for Serbian products. Organic bean growing enables the producers a higher proft. Expenses in organic production are higher (2170 EUR/ha) than those in conventional bean production (1825 EUR/ha). However, net proft in the organic production was estimated to 1440 EUR/ha, while the proft in the conventional concept was 315 EUR/ha. Also, proftability rate and the economic effciency coeffcient had higher values when growing bean in organic concept.
