Summary

In this paper, which represents parts of a broader study on growth, we reflect upon the notion of growth in the organic agrofood chain from a philosophical point of view. Our objective is to identify characteristics of growth in an organic context. We first look at growth of the organic movement as a whole, and demand and supply. We then study the meaning of growth in the context of soils and plants. The IFOAM principles orient the meaning of growth in the organic agrofood system. With these reflections we wish to initiate a debate on a deeper understanding of growth in the organic movement.
