Implications Of Organic Farming Upon Sustainable Rural Development


  • Sima, Elena

    () (Institute of Agricultural Economics, Romanian Academy, Bucharest)


In recent years, all over the world, the concern for preserving people’s health as well as a healthy environment acquired a permanent dimension, meant to ensure the meeting of present consumption needs without jeopardizing those of the future generations. In the European Union, the development of organic farming, as an alternative to conventional agriculture, of industrial type, has experienced great progress. In perspective, the organic dimension of the Common Agricultural Policy will grow, as all the EU Member States are obliged to limit the area of ecological aggressions. For Romania, the organic farming is a sector for the future developments, that has experienced an increasing trend in recent years, both in the crop production and livestock sector.
