That ignores supply and demand. Relatively few organic farms and large demand for it. Consider that legal marijuana production in the US is about to become larger than organic food: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/25/marijuana-industry-fastest-growing_n_6540166.html

No, ignoring supply and demand would be failing to take into account why the suppliers have not mobilized en masse to carry out organic farming if it's more efficient, cheaper, higher yielding, and substantially more profitable given the current pricing structure.

That would ignore the billions of dollars poured into conventional farming, and the companies who are profiting off of the chemicals.

That ignores supply. If there were huge demand for a produce and few suppliers, there'd be an enormous incentive to get in while the going was good and make a killing. If the situation you were describing were true, organic farming would be a gold rush.
