Parlement européen, Question E-003316/2020/rev.1 avec demande de réponse écrite à la Commission de Zbigniew Kuźmiuk (ECR) du 2 juin 2020 – Agriculture biologique et la stratégie de la ferme à la fourchette

Niveau juridique : Union européenne

Texte de la question :

« The farm-to-fork strategy contains a number of references to organic farming as a sector which is important for the whole of the Green Deal.

1. The proportion of organic farming in some Member States already stands at 20%, in others, the figure is not even 5%. How is the Commission planning to establish the proportion of organic farming throughout the EU at 25%? Can countries with a lower proportion of organic farming count on receiving more support for organic farming? Will the 25% target be assessed in relation to the EU’s entire farming sector, without a breakdown by country?

2. How does the Commission plan to facilitate the registration of seed varieties, including in organic farming, to ensure easier market access for traditional and locally adapted varieties? 

3. The organic farming community has proposed postponing the entry into force of Regulation (EU) 2020/848 of the European Parliament and of the Council. The initiative was supported by a number of Member States, with no objections raised. Will the Commission support this initiative, and when can a decision on this be expected? »
