JEDDAH: The Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture unveiled its organic farming action plan, which was approved by the Cabinet, and has allocated SR750 million ($200 million) to support it.
The plan will be one of the most important means of supporting organic production, said the ministry’s undersecretary, Ahmed bin Ali Al-Eyada.
“The plan aims to increase organic production by 300 percent. Its other objectives include providing safe food, sustainable, highly profitable farming, which will be an important resource for the national economy.
“Organic farmers are a key part of this plan, so they must be supported by it through different means,” he added.
