Demand for organically produced food is continuously increasing, as is the interest of governments. It is expected that the organic area will continue to grow but producers must change many things to transition to organic.
The basic principles of organic agriculture are a great starting point for those interested in transitioning to growing their crops or raising their livestock, organically.
The dossier explains the basics of organic farming and shows how they are applied in practice. The publication is a valuable source of information for farmers interested in conversion to organic farming. It also serves as a guide for the private sector, government representatives, non-governmental organisations and other interested parties in their efforts to make food production in Europe more sustainable.
