Organic farming way behind schedule

The government wants 20 per cent of farmland in Sweden to be organic by the end of 2010 - but so far we are only half way there, says the Swedish Board of Agriculture.

Last year only 9.8 per cent of farmland was managed according to EU organic standards, and this year it will not reach more than 12.5 per cent, says the Board of Agriculture in a press release.
