Our funding policy is, within the resources available, to support the development of a sustainable organic farming industry that makes a strong contribution to the management of Scotland’s agricultural land and water resources. The Organic Action Plan , which was published in 2003, sets out the several strands of our funding policy: support for farmers converting to and maintaining organic farming methods; support for marketing and processing of organic products; advisory support and provision of market information to organic farmers, and support for organic research and development.
