Only 12 percent of farmers have a principled objection to organic farming as a form of cultivation, but many of them must meet additional conditions in order to commit themselves in this direction, according to a recent survey by the Biokontroll Hungária Nonprofit Kft.

Most farmers are open to organic farming, but need more information

According to a statement sent to the MTI by the organic farming inspection and certification organization on Tuesday, the analysis was made timely by the government announcing a new tender in line with the European Union’s plans to increase the proportion of organically farmed land to 25 percent by 2030. This is a big challenge, but it is also an opportunity for agriculture, because its ratio is currently 6.5-7.0 percent. (MTI)
