This cluster aims to promote the Green Deal’s “Farm to Fork” target of at least 25% of agricultural land in the EU being managed organically by 2030 by advancing the available evidence about conditions (barriers and drivers) and potential support programmes to encourage balanced and equitable growth of organic agriculture in the EU. Case studies in Germany, Hungary, Poland, and the UK identify the required compensation that conventional farmers’ demand for switching to certified organic production and other leverage points. It exposes fundamental determinants (farm level, value chain and policy) of cross-country differences in uptake of organic farming, and experiments with most relevant design features of an organic farming scheme. The research will analyse data from interviews and discrete choice experiments (DCE) techniques administered to different types of stakeholders.
