World Map of Organic Agriculture

World Map of Organic Agriculture

Melbourne, July 2, 2016 - The Atlas of Organics presents four new maps of the world of organic agriculture. Researchers from Oxford University and the University of Tasmania have teamed up to create four intriguing maps that throw new light on what are otherwise a bland tabulation of data.

The cartograms of Drs John Paull and Benjamin Hennig show Australia as the world leader in land devoted to organic agriculture. Australia's share is 40% of the world's total of 43 million organic agriculture hectares. Europe accounts for 27% of the world's organic agriculture land. Argentina dominates in South America's organic agriculture, and China dominates organics in Asia. The Falkland Islands (Malvinas) exhibit a surprisingly large presence in the map of organic agriculture.

The world map of organic wildculture shows Finland as it has never been seen before - dominating Europe. Organic wildculture includes the collection of wild honey, berries, and mushrooms. The giants of the organic wildculture map include Zambia, Namibia and Morocco in Africa, and India in Asia.

The map of the world of organic producers reveals India as the giant of organic producers. For North America it is Mexico with an outsize presence. While in Africa, it is Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia that make a strong showing.

The four maps in the Atlas of Organics are created using the Worldmapper GIS algorithm developed at the University of Sheffield and data aggregated by FiBL. The full open access paper by Paull and Hennig (2016) is available at

The Journal of Organics is an open access international peer-reviewed academic journal. The mission of the Journal of Organics is to publish new research on any aspect of the world of organics - including organic agriculture, organic food, organic aquaculture, organic forestry, organic certification, green technologies, and challenges to organics including GMOs, nanotechnology, and synthetic pesticides.
