Design: Assessment of the resource potential of the Russian regions in the direction of the development of organic agriculture, the substantiation of the effectiveness of new areas of activity for the Russian agrarian economy.

Based on the environmental and economic assessment, the most promising agrarian regions were selected as potential producers of organic products.
