Summary

The rapid development of organic farming over the last decade is partly due to increased consideration of organic farming in policy measures. Examining this view, this article briefly discusses the current state and development of the organic farming sector and three lines of justification for policy support for organic farming: organic farming supplies public goods; the organic farming sector can be defined as an infant industry; and organic farming should be supported for risk precaution. Then, based on the observation that policy makers consider organic farming support justified, an integrated approach to organic farming policy is outlined.
