Support for organic farming - the case of Castile and Leon [Spain]

Aid for the conversion or maintenance of farm management to organic production is granted to farms based on the EU Regulations 834/2007 and 889/2008 on organic production. The beneficiary has to comply with the regulation and the specifications of the measure for a minimum period of five years. 

The interest of the agricultural sector in this aid has been growing steadily since it was first implemented in 1995. In 2017, the organic agricultural area in Castile-Leon reached 47,659ha and in 2019, it was already 50,500ha.

This support measure for organic production is not included in the latest NECP.

Recommendations

The measure could be strengthened by increasing its budget.
