Philippines: Organic Agriculture Act of 2010 signed

A measure seeking the development and promotion of organic farming, or a chemical-free agricultural method, has been signed into law by President Arroyo.

Republic Act No. 10068, or the “Organic Agriculture Act of 2010,” establishes a comprehensive organic farming program, that includes incentives for farmers engaged in the production of agricultural crops free from harmful chemical pesticides and fertilizer.

The new law, signed last April 6, also created a National Organic Agricultural Board (NOAB) to provide policy direction towards the promotion of organic farming in a bid to promote a healthier citizenry and an environment-friendly atmosphere.
