On 22 November 2021 Agence France-Presse (at France24) reported:
Proudly displaying her freshly picked pomegranates, Tunisian farmer Sarah Shili says going organic is 'the future of farming' -- and as demand surges in North Africa and beyond, the sector is blooming. Despite the challenges, the [organic farming] sector has surged in Tunisia since the turn of the millennium. In 2001, just 16,000 hectares were dedicated to organic farming -- a figure that has multiplied 20-fold over two decades.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of environment, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
The number of producers and venders has grown at a similar pace to some 8,000, said Samia Maamer, in charge of organic products at the agriculture ministry.
... Despite its small size, Tunisia ranks 30th in the world and first in Africa in terms of area certified for organic farming.
Bio farming is also on the rise in Morocco ... Morocco's agriculture ministry said it has prioritized organic agriculture and is hoping to reach 100,000 hectares of certified farmland by 2030, with 900,000 tonnes of produce per year -- two-thirds of it for export.
