DEFRA Organic statistics 2021

24 May 2022

DEFRA has issued statistical data for 2021 showing a rise in land being converted to organic production.

Following the government announcement earlier this year that they would pay up to double the previous rates to farmers in England who convert to organic, further growth in this sector is expected.

All payments for organic farming are rising by between 50 and 500% for those entering a new scheme with Countryside Stewardship (open for applications until July).
