Organic farming is based on minimal use of off-farm inputs and on management practices that restore, maintain or enhance ecological harmony. Worldwide, the demand for organic products appears to have expanded quickly in the past decade, stimulated by consumer perceptions that organic products are safe and healthy. Organic production in Turkey is almost entirely dependent on exports. Organic sector in Turkey is the relatively slow development of domestic demand. In this regard, the aim of this article is to give the readers an idea about the present situation of organic agriculture in Turkey. The topic summarizes the organic agriculture activity both in production and marketing aspects. Therefore, some recommendations are made to improve the organic market in Turkey.
