Michelsen, J.; Lynggaard, K.; Padel, S. and Foster, C. (2001) Organic Farming Development and Agricultural Institutions in Europe: A Study of Six Countries. Organic Farming in Europe: Economics and Policy, no. Vol. 9. Universität Hohenheim, Stuttgart - Hohenheim.
Cooperation between general agricultural institutions and the organisation of the organic farming sector are key factors for the development of organic farming. This study analyses the relationships of organic farming organisations with other farmers' organisations, agencies of agricultural policy and food market firms in six European countries. On this basis it identifies a path for successful development of organic farming which is adaptable to the special conditions of all European countries.
This book presents the most systematic and in-depth comparison of the dynamics of organic farming development to date, providing concrete suggestions for a line of action for everyone with an interest in developing organic farming.
