The Important Elements of United Kingdom Organic Farming

with the rising population, the gap between the demand and supply of organic agricultural products has increased. To minimize the gap between these two economic parameters, there is a surging need to increase the yield of organic crops. Moreover, to fuel this, earlier this year, the government of the United Kingdom announced that it will double the previous rates for farmers in England who would convert conventional farming to organic farming. Besides this, the growing prevalence of several diseases, such as cancer, asthma, throat infection, etc., due to the consumption of chemically grown food products has negatively impacted consumer health. As a result, consumers are increasingly demanding organic food products. This, in turn, is providing lucrative growth opportunities to the United Kingdom organic farming market.

The United Kingdom organic farming market is segmented by type, method, land area, ownership, food type, organic livestock, competitional landscape, and regional distribution. Based on the type, the market is differentiated between pure organic farming and integrated organic farming. Among these, the pure organic farming segment is expected to lead the market over the coming years. This is primarily because pure organic farming completely prohibits the use of inorganic chemicals that may harm the crop, and soil, and negatively impact the health of people who consume it. In this process, farmers utilize organic fertilizers and bio-pesticides that are derived from natural sources such as bone meal, blood meal, etc. with the growing disorders due to the consumption of chemically grown food, consumers are increasingly opting for food products that are grown organically. As a result, this segment is expected to propel itself in the coming years.

By the method, the market is bifurcated between crop rotation, polyculture, mulching, cutting, composting, weed management, soil management, and others. The weed management segment recorded the highest share in the market in recent years. It is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period due to the ease attached to this process. Weed management involves the removal and de-growth of unwanted plants that germinate from the organic plant. Under this method, the unwanted plant is cut away and a thin plastic sheet is slid over the surface to restrict the future growth of the crop. Since this method allows a convenient management process and enhances crop production, it is positively contributing to the growth of the United Kingdom organic farming market.

Based on the land area the market is fragmented into 1 hectare, 1.1-5 hectares, 5.1-10 hectares, and 10.1-30 hectares.

By ownership, the market is segmented between contract farming and in-house. Among these, the contract farming segment is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period. This is primarily because contract farming is carried out on a large farm area and in a systematic way. Due to less portion available outside the houses for in-house farming, consumers usually depend on the organic products grown and supplied by the farmers.

Based on the food type the market is fragmented into fruits & vegetables, cereals & grains, oilseeds & pulses, organic livestock, and others. Among these, cereals & grains will lead the market in the coming years as grains ad cereals such as wheat, barley, oats, and sugar beets are among the most consumed agricultural product in the United Kingdom. The region is largely self-sufficient in the production of grains and produces over 100% of domestic consumption of barley and oats and over 90% of wheat.

By Organic Livestock the market is divided between poultry, cattle, sheep, and others. Sheep and cattle are among the most consumed livestock in the United Kingdom. In April 2019, almost 1.2 million sheep were slaughtered. Consequently, sheep will continue to dominate the livestock segment.
