Summary

Modern high-input agriculture has produced great increases in crop yields but social
and environmental costs have also been high. Over the past decades, sustainability
has become more and more a guiding principle in agriculture. In this context, organic
farming became recognised by farmers, policymakers and consumers as one of the
possibilities for the farmer in a more sustainable way (De Cock L., 2005).
