Romania’s potential for ecological farming is 2 million hectares

Romania has a maximum potential of ecological farming of two million hectares, taking into account the fact that we produce such ecological goods to sell them, the President of the National Federation of Ecological Agriculture, Ion Toncea, told a press conference yesterday, according to Agerpres. He noted that, in 2008, the total area occupied by ecological crops had reached 230,000–240,000 hectares, less than a quarter of a million.’

He said the demand for ecological goods – both raw materials and finished goods such as eggs, vegetal oils – sunflower or rape seed oil – dairy products (largely varieties of cheese) and honey – in 2009 is four times bigger.

Ecological farming is very well adapted to conditions in Romania, and Romanian agriculture is less developed which is good for ecological farming, said IFOAM European Union President Francis Blake.
