COMING SOON IN BELARUS - The law on organic farming may be passed in Belarus in 2014, Nikolai Ivanchenko, head of the Initiative group, vice-chairman of the permanent commission on ecology, environmental management and the Chernobyl disaster of the House of Representatives, told reporters. The MP said that organic farming is very important in the world today. More and more people prefer organic food. 
“Production of ecologically clean food increases every year. For example, in China the annual growth is about 20%. Chinese import of organic food to Europe reaches $6 billion. This is a big economy, and our country cannot stand aside, it must also participate in this process,” said Nikolai Ivanchenko. According to him, this is an extremely important task for Belarus. 

Belarus can set up a harmonious system for the production of organic products by bringing together MPs and all agencies concerned, according to the MP. “We need to develop the bill on organic or ecological agriculture, and on organic products,” said Nikolai Ivanchenko.  Pursuant to the orders of the head of state on the development of organic agriculture in Belarus, the government has already adopted a relevant resolution, developed a plan of activities for the production of organic food products. The MP stressed that organic farming would help the country preserve one of its main resources - land. 
Today farmers use various chemicals, mineral fertilizers that leave a negative effect on soil. Organic farming is one of the ways to maintain soil fertility. Besides, eco-friendly production will help conserve the nature, improve people’s health and the demographic situation in the country.

Good news as regards Organic Farming! The House of Representatives of the Republic of Belarus has recently hosted a roundtable to assess the efficiency of the implementation of the project of international technical assistance in organic farming. The event is aimed at promoting cooperation and experience sharing between Sweden, Lithuania and Belarus in developing sustainable organic farming and permanent food communities for enhancing the level of knowledge in organic farming and its benefits for the nature of both Belarus and the Baltic region. “We will take foreign experience into account, it is valuable and important for us,” the MP Nikolai Ivanchenko said. We should support organic farming because Nature by itself provides everything to produce healthy, nutritious fruits, vegetables and grains.

Organic food is grown in a natural way, without chemical fertilizers, without pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or any other poison. And, of course, with original, unaltered, unmodified seeds. ... Plants are perfect as they are. They fulfill a purpose in nature. So there is absolutely no need to do speculative experiments with gene-technique on the seeds, in order to modify the plants. ... The customer has the power to support the production of organic food, restrict the production of genetically engineered food and the use of chemical substances, simply by buying natural, organically grown foodstuff and not accepting altered food. And preferably buying directly from farmers or local stores. We have to educate and inform ourselves about how to support local communities.
