More German vegetables

This article was originally published in Foodnews

IN GERMANY, 990 702 hectares of land are devoted to organic crops, reports the Federal Ministry for Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection (BMELV). These are managed by some 22 000 companies. The state of Brandenburg has the highest proportion of organic crop land, at 10.8%, followed by the Saarland at 10.2% and Hesse at 9.9%. A total of 107 298 ha of land were devoted to outdoor vegetables in Germany last year, bucking the downward trend of recent years, according to AMI. Although this is still lower than 2008 levels, the 3.38 million-tonne vegetable harvest was one of the largest on record, second only to that of 2009.
