- One strict and easily understandable rule in organic farming such as the ban of synthetic fertilisers often results in a number of environmental benefits.
- Organic farming support helps to minimise costs for farm support while increasing its environmental effects.
- Cost effectiveness of organic farming support can result from consistency of the policy measure, the system approach of organic farming and resulting synergetic environmental effects, as well as increased market values and lower transaction costs.
