Organic farming and research in Italy

Organic acreage in Italy is the widest among the European countries (about 1 million hectares) and it is, at present, in a rising phase; at the same time Italy is second in the world for number of organic growers (about 50.000 organic farms).
This data have been released by the National Institute of Agricultural Economics (INEA) and by the German Research Institute for Organic Agriculture (FiBL) during the conference 'Development of knowledge and organic agriculture: New frontiers for the organic sector', that took place, last april 16, at the Agri-food Department of the National Research Council (CNR), in Rome.
