25% of the EU’s agricultural area should be organic by 2030

Despite the fact that the pandemic has created new challenges for European agriculture, EC Vice President Frans Timmermans has stated that he does not plan to change his agenda.

The latest drafts of the documents “Biodiversity on the horizon 2030” (Commissioner for the Environment) and “From farm to table” (Commissioner for Health and Food Safety) suggest that the area devoted to organic farming should represent 25% of the total agricultural area of the European Union by the year 2030, that 10% of agricultural land be destined to non-productive elements, that the use of non-organic fertilizers be reduced by 20% and that the use of plant protection products be cut by 50%.
