In this regard, the statistical population of the study was 32 experts of Ministry of Agricultural and the Faculties of Agriculture at university of Jordan and Mu′ta University. The results showed that there was a high cost of producing organic crops regarding economic barriers, while regarding social – cultural barriers there was a poor participation of the farmers.
