Implementation of organic agriculture and development of sustainable agriculture production gives a new lifestyle quality in local communities and country in general. Intensive agriculture is unsustainable and it cannot support production of enough food longtermly because of compromising the basic settings for food
production. The modern agriculture trends involve favorizing of new high yielding varieties produced with high input consumption which is a direct threat for genetic diversity and agriculture. Ingenious genotypes have enormous gene poll of different desirable characteristics, but they are permanently endangered because of
utilization of commercial varieties.
Introduction of organic farming is a hope for survival of endangered and ingenious varieties and genotypes. The positive role of organic farming is foreseen in growing crops in their natural environment which contributes to conservation of existing genetic diversity. Utilization of old varieties and local genotypes
in organic farming is one of the ways to increase genetic diversity and biodiversity in agricultural system and it gives to the organic farming broader and durable meaning regarding protection of ecosystem and environment.
Environmental conservation and protection are important to the politics of rural development in EU.Following this approach, there is need for implementation of instruments which will create conditions for development of sustainable, highly harmonized agriculture with the principles of environmental protection.
