Review:

'An essential reference for anyone concerned with the growing global significance of organic agriculture.' Patrick Holden, CBE, Director of the Soil Association, UK 'A concise, up-to-date overview of how the industry is growing on a global scale, with detailed studies of aquaculture, new standards and regulations, notable achievements, and the challenges ahead. Not only packed with facts and figures, it includes expert insights into the latest issues, from the adoption of the new East African Organic Products Standard to the state of organics in Iran. More general coverage includes information on crop production worldwide... an indispensable manual for organic practitioners, researchers and those simply with a statistical interest in this rising force in world farming.' New Agriculturalist 'For someone in the organic profession, or a student, this is an extremely useful resource. It should be an essential purchase.' David Younie, Scottish Agricultural College, UK 'The best documentation on the state of the art of the organic sector worldwide.' Edith Lammerts van Bueren, Louis Bolk Institute, The Netherlands 'I have seen The World of Organic Agriculture before and find it to be a very useful book. Given how much organic agriculture is growing, it is important to publish these statistics on a yearly basis. Libraries should carry the book, as well as those professionals whose primary concern is organic agriculture.' Ivette Perfecto, University of Michigan, USA 'Because it is regularly updated it offers unique data which are not recorded elsewhere.' Julia Wright, Henry Doubleday Research Association, UK 'A very important publication - unique and comprehensive.' Paul Kristiansen, University of New England, Australia 'Packed with information, charts and graphs on organic agriculture... this meticulously researched hardback volume gives all of the answers. An excellent reference volume. ' William Critchley, WASWC, Amsterdam, June 2008 'A valuable single source.' Experimental Agriculture 'It includes contributioons from representatives of the organic sector from throughout the world and provides comprehensive organic farming statistics that cover surface area under organic management, numbers of farms and specific informaion about commodities and land use in organic systems.' Biotechnology, Agronomy Society and Environment
