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.
