According to the last report by the French Observatoire National de l'Agriculture biologique, an entity financed by the French ministry of Agriculture in charge of surveying the organic products industry, over 9,000 French farmers produced organic products in 2000, representing a 14 per cent increase in a year, while the acreage of land cultivated without chemical fertilisers and pesticides, grew 17 per cent to reach 370,000 hectares. However, this only represents 1.3 per cent of the French agricultural land. The organism underlines that these results reflect a "distinct pause in the growth"​ of this activity after "four years of strong progression."
