Impact of Organic Farming Promotion upon the Sustainable Rural Development
AbstractThe obvious impact of farming activities upon the environment quality determined an increasingly rigorous concern of compatibilization between the two terms of the equation. These orientations reflect the new evolutions of the sustainable development process in the rural areas and an ecologic approach to agriculture. In Romania, the organic farming is a dynamic sector that has experienced an increasing trend in recent years, both in the crop production and livestock sector. The state and private organizations carry out farmers’ information and training actions with regard to organic farming, while the specialized higher education institutions are concerned with the training of specialists in this field. The direct expression of this phenomenon is represented by the main contribution of producers from this sector to sustainable development through the increase of biodiversity, environment protection and soil fertility, as well as by the development and promotion of the Romanian organic products on the domestic and world food markets.
