Rural Affairs Minister, Elin Jones, explained that she has taken this action in order to provide and ongoing support for organic farming whilst ensuring a smooth transition into Glastir, the new land management scheme for Wales. She added that the scheme is in line with the aims of the Second Organic Action Plan for Wales to support the sustainable development of the organic markets.
