Production of Organic Agricultural Products is an Important Area of “Green” Economy


Background/Objectives: Purpose of the work is to analyze scientific research concerning organic agriculture and greening of agricultural production and develop recommendations on appropriate legal regulation in the Sverdlovsk region and the Russian Federation. Methods: The legal engineering, including general scientific methods of cognition: Analysis and synthesis, induction and deduction, etc., were used as the main methods of research. Findings: Currently in Russia about 50 million hectares of 122 million ha of arable land are derived from agricultural production and synthetic chemical fertilizers are not applied on these arable lands for 20 years or more. This factor allows using unoccupied land areas for the production of organic agricultural produce of both vegetable and animal origin. To organize organic agriculture in the Russian Federation it is required to adopt an appropriate federal law, which has been done in some regions. This federal law should provide rules governing the production of organic agricultural products, develop a national standard for this type of agricultural production; determine the level of public financial support for producers of such products; stipulate pricing guidelines; identify state control and supervision over the quality of organic agricultural products; legal responsibility for violation of legislation on production and marketing of organic products. Some other tasks in the sphere of organic agricultural production should also be solved: the formation of a new philosophy of healthy nutrition, as well as the organization of agricultural production. Applications/Improvements: Legislative regulation considering the aforementioned principles is the basis for development of organic agriculture in the country. This trend will be most important in the field of Russian exports of food products to the world agricultural market.
