of synthetic chemical inputs, irradiation, and the use
of sewage sludge; avoidance of genetically modi ed seed; use of farmland that has been free from prohibited chemical inputs for a number of years (often, three

Denmark has the world’s largest percentagesales of organic products (for humans) at 9,6 % in 2016.
