Milestone towards more sustainable hungarian agriculture
The area of certified organic land will increase by nearly 90,000 hectares in Hungary because outstanding demand has led the Ministry of Agriculture to triple the planned budget for organic subsidies to HUF 36 billion (ca. EUR 120 million). The Hungarian Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (ÖMKi) also lobbied hard for this increase. The press conference organized on 18th April by ÖMKi reflected on the new decision, and how organic agriculture should develop in the future.

ÖMKi 2018: successful year for organic farming
We were not lazy in 2018 either: we organized workshops in Hungary and abroad, we provided professional representation for the organic sector at several Hungarian and international forums, we organized an awareness raising campaign for the wide public, and our on-farm network won the Oscar award of the energy sector.
