Roadmap on Organic Farming in EU

In September, the European Commission is due to present a roadmap on organic agriculture. The document will focus on strengthening the monitoring system of organic certification and label and the issue of the impact of GMOs.
Christopher Stopes - president of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM) Europe group - expressed good hopes for the initiative, stressing the need to revise the EU legislation on organic agriculture to promote the demand and the production of organic products. Despite state support in some European countries, organic farming occupies only the 2,2 % of the total European  farmland and it is administered by an EU regulation  dating back to 2007.
