The development of organic farming, since its beginning in the early 1990s, has been dynamic. It started as an alternative farming system supported by a limited range of people. Today, it is recognized by the state and has gained wide support from consumers and their confidence. Currently, the Czech Republic ranks among top countries in terms of organically farmed land area in Europe. It is very likely that the objective that has been set by the Action Plan on Organic Farming – 10 percent of the land area under organic management by 2010 - will be reached.
