For more than two decades, organic farming has been supported through policy measures which have contributed to the growth of the organic sector in the European Union. However, the degree and type of support for organic farming differs substantially between Member States. The study led by the von Thünen Institute “Use and efficiency of public support measures addressing organic farming”, with ORC and FIBL as lead partners, was commissioned externally by the European Commission. It provides a comprehensive overview of public support measures for organic farming in all 27 EU Member States and explores the relationship between policy measures, policy strategies and the development of organic farming. England and Wales are featured in more detail as one of the case study countries.

The published report and annexes have been published on the DG Agri website and on Organic e-prints.
