For more than 20 years, organic farming has been a focus of politics. In the meantime numerous support programmes have been implemented at regional, national and European level. A comprehensive development and support strategy, coordinated with other relevant policy fields, is however lacking in many European countries. This is a key result of the study that provides a comprehensive overview of public support measures for organic farming in all 27 Member State and explores in-depth the relationship between policy measures, policy strategies and the development of organic farming.
