Some policy suggestions for promoting organic agriculture in Asia

In The Journal of Sustainable Agriculture 34, 2010 2010-01

The benefits of organic agriculture have not been realized to its full potential even though the organic market has been steadily expanding due to rapid economic growth and increasing environmental and health concerns in Asia. Organic agriculture has largely been promoted under the umbrella of low chemical and environmentally friendly agriculture with different countries at different stages of establishing their own certification systems. Although overall benefits are expected from a harmonized certification system, Asian countries need to tailor their national organic promotion policies considering diverse national circumstances and improve technical and institutional capacity to implement such policies.
