Summary

Med et offentlig mål om at 15 % av matproduksjonen og -forbruket skal være økologisk i 2015, må norsk økologisk landbruk vokse raskt og mye. Da er det problematisk at mange økobønder slutter. Fra 2004 til 2007 meldte 646 bønder seg ut av Debios kontrollordning for økologisk produksjon. Nettotilveksten i samme periode var bare 177 bruk, slik at det i 2007 var 2611 økogårder i Norge. Andel økologisk jordbruksareal økte fra 3,4 til 3,9 %, noe som er for sakte i forhold til målsetningen.

Summary translation

In Norway there is a national goal of 15% organic food production and consumption within 2015. To achieve this goal organic farming has to grow quick and a lot. So it is challenging that many farmers opt out. From 2004 to 2007, 646 farmers resigned from certified organic production. The net growth in the period was just 177 farms, so in 2007 there were 2611 certified organic farms in Norway. The share of organic agricultural area increased from 3.4 to 3.9 %. This is too little in relation to the mentioned goal.
