Based on bibliographic and survey data, were constructed indicators of develop ment of those functions in the NUTS regions. It was found that the most developed organic farming was the most developed in north-west region, and the region north. Least developed organic farming was observed in the north-western and northern regions, while the least developed one in the southern region.
