Last week, Avalon has presented the results of its study about the consequences of a large-scale conversion to organic farming. This study was commissioned by the three Northern Netherlands Provinces: Fryslân, Groningen and Drenthe. Their policy makers wanted to get a deeper insight about what the expected consequences of a potential large-scale conversion to organic farming could bring to society in the Northern Netherlands, notably in terms of economy, environment and human health.
