Abstract: This study aims to approach some interesting points of view on-looker the organic agriculture in Europe, a new relative area of modern agriculture, which is in a continuous development nowadays. The organic agriculture has a very important place in the agriculture in Europe and in entire world. In contrast to other parts of European agriculture, organic farming is a growth sector. Althought rapid growth has been observed in absolute terms, the organic farming sector is still quite small, covering only about four percent of total agricultural land area in the EU. Due to differences in support between Member States and regions, large differences in the development stage of the organic sector exist.
