What 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.Details
Globally and in the EU, the market for organic products continued to grow in 2021
The latest statistics on worldwide organic farming have been published BIOFACH, the world's largest international fair presenting organic products, was held in Germany between 14 and 17 February 2023. During these four days, in addition to getting to know the companies involved in the production of organic food and their products, an international expert conference was convened, and included a number of sessions discussing the strategic issues currently facing the sector, including questions of policy, sustainability, science and trade. One of the most prominent recurring events at BIOFACH is the presentation of the statistical yearbook on organic farming worldwide. The latest edition of ‘The World of Organic Agriculture’, published by FiBL/IFOAM, gives an idea of the global, European and domestic situation of organic farming based on 2021 data. The now traditional session held by the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (ÖMKi), featuring decision-makers from Central and Eastern Europe, likewise attracted great interest.Details
