NewsWhat was New in Organic Agriculture in 2022?

2022 was full of extra challenges for Hungarian agriculture as a whole. However, the difficulties again show that in a rapidly changing world, future-proof agroecological production methods are extremely valuable, and provide a reliable reference point. More EU and domestic resources than ever before have been made available to Hungarian farmers for organic production and transition, and the Hungarian Organic Action Plan, which came into effect in 2022, is encouraging further development in the sector. The Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (ÖMKi) is strengthening domestic knowledge transfer and the sustainability revolution through its wide-ranging and expanding research, as well as its growing role in EU projects.

ÖMKi: Our food supply can be made more sustainable by developing local supply chains and reducing waste

October 16 is World Food Day and World Bread Day

In preparation for World Food Day, which is celebrated together with World Bread Day on 16 October, the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (ÖMKi) is promoting the consumption of healthy foods, the preservation of our food security, and the production of high-quality, local organic foods. The latest results of ÖMKi’s nationwide, small-plot winter wheat variety tests have recently been published and have the potential to further increase the proportion of wheat grown under organic cultivation on Hungary’s arable land, as well as the range of products made from organic wheat flour in domestic bakeries and on consumers' tables.
