Summary/Abstract: The development of organic farming in Bulgaria is one of the priorities of the Ministry of Agriculture and Foods which works to maintain the trend of increasing the number of organic farmers, the amount of organically cultivated lands and the diversity of organically grown crops and animals. The positive effects of organic products and foods for human health, protecting the environment and preserving natural resources have been greatly popularized lately. This is also due to the fact that bigger groups and communities, both in the European Union and in Bulgaria, are interested in healthy eating and sustainable use of natural resources. This leads to the necessity of highly motivated farmers and obtaining good economic results from the introduction of organic production approaches in modern ecologically-oriented farms.
