The EU presents ambitious plans for organic farming

At the end of 2019, the EU introduced a comprehensive environmental program called “The European Green Deal” to make EU agriculture sustainable. Now, Commissioner Stella Kyriakides has announced certain goals that have been set up as part of this work. One goal is for organic agriculture to reach at least 25% of the total area by 2030. It is only 10 years from now and it feels very ambitious indeed.

At present, the organic agricultural area in the EU is 7.5% of the total area. The percentage of the vineyard area that is organic is larger than for other agricultural sectors (see our other piece on the growth of organic wine growing), but viticulture accounts for a very small part of all agriculture in the EU.
