DLG-Special Organic Farming

The Ökolandbau (Organic Farming) special event at DLG Field Days 2018 offers visitors the opportunity to gain a comprehensive overview of the latest trends and developments in organic farming.

The extensive programme provides a host of information for farmers who are interested in organic farming or are currently converting their land to organic farming and those who are already running a successful organic farm.

Organic farming has developed into a significant pillar of German agriculture. 8% of German farmland is currently farmed in line with organic precepts, and the trend is growing.
The latest business survey by the German Farmers Association (DBV) shows that 15% of all German farmers are interested in making the transition to organic farming. The general consensus is that a 20% target for organic farmland should be aimed for.
