Summary

Consumers trust the quality of organic farming products and pay higher prices for organic food. For this reason controls are necessary to ensure that legal standards under the EC Organic Farming Regulation are being followed in production and processing of animal and crop products. Collected in this book are reference figures to be applied in controls for calculating product flow, appraising plausibility and also reliably assessing yields and wastage. Target groups are inspectors conducting on-location farm or plant inspections or those wishing to learn about new aspects within this sector. Farm managers or advisors preparing for such controls can likewise find valuable information. In addition to its role as control point reference, the book is also aimed at establishing uniformity of control methods for farm and plant inspections.
