Organic oilseeds constitute an important element in organic production. Their products are
important feedstuffs (oilcake) and also relevant for human consumption (soya products, oils), and demand
for these is continually growing. Almost 1.5 million hectares or 11% of the world’s organic arable land were
used for growing organic oilseeds in 2018. This is 0.6% of the world’s total harvested oilseed area. On half of
the organic oilseed area soybeans are grown, and about one third of the organic oilseed area is in China,
where much of the production is for export. It is expected that with the growing organic market, which
reached 97 billion euros in 2018, the organic oilseed area and in particular that of soybeans will continue to
grow fast.
