After a few years the number of agricultural holdings in Slovenia for the organic farming control system rose again
The number of agricultural holdings in Slovenia for the system of control and certification was in 2012 by just over 13% higher than in 2011, while the number of new agricultural holdings in the system grew from 179 in 2011 to 417. Municipalities Koper and Piran have the highest number of new agricultural holdings. However, each year there is a certain number of agricultural holdings that are no longer in the system.

They represented 21% of all olive groves, but in any case these areas are small compared to other land use categories. They are followed by permanent grassland and orchards with 11% share of the total area in each land use category. Arable land with organic farming represented just over 2% of the total area of arable land.
