Summary

As public became more aware of the possible hazardous effects of the conventional
farming products, organic agriculture practices have been increasingly spreading all
over the world.
Since the 1980’s, organic agriculture has been an important topic in the research
agenda of the scientists active in various fields from science to biology or even
economics.
Economic Unions have been increasingly important in the last decade, in which one of
them is the European Union (EU) being the most integrated of all. It is an enlarging
body that has achieved considerable degree of economic integration. The EU is
considered to be important for Turkey. The EU has a supporting role in agricultural
policy. Organical agriculture, which is considered to have an important role in EU
economics, became more important issue between Turkey and EU relations, due to
Turkey’s agriculture potential.
Organic agriculture started in Turkey through the demand from foreign countries in
1990’s. Due to the lack of information sharing on organic agriculture, organic
agriculture sector in Turkey was not aware of its potential. It is one of the factors that
affects organic farming sector negatively. By creating the body which enables data
sharing system by more number of people and significant support by organic agriculture
sides would lead the sector to benefit from the existing potential. Organic agriculture
market in Turkey will have a chance to compete with other world organic agriculture
markets. Organic agriculture’s products are healthy for consumers. On the other hand
what is also argued within this thesis is organic agriculture’s beneficial effects on the
nature.
