Organic farming has developed very rapidly in all European countries since the beginning of 1990s. In Turkey it showed significant increase in recent years. Worldwide, the global market was valued at 23 billion dollars. In the European Union, the most important advisory agencies for organic farming are implemented by private units (38.4%), farmers’organisations (28.3%) and the Ministry. However, advisory service for organic products in Turkey is implemented mainly by foreign importer firms, which is the most important advisory unit. Considering the growing domestic demand for organic products in the medium and long term in Turkey, various advisory services should be established similar to those in EU countries.
