Organic farming is a sector of great perspective for Romania, due to the fact that it enjoys appropriate conditions for the development of such a system of agriculture, fertile soils and low level of pollution of the countryside, by comparison with the economically developed countries, where super intensive agricultural technologies are used extensively, based largely on chemical fertilizers and pesticides. According to some data from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, organic products market in Romania is in the full process of development and diversification. The aim of the present study was to analyse and interpret statistical data on the main crops, the evolution of cultivated areas, environment and ecological operators, the main genetically modified plants and the evolution of the areas cultivated with genetically modified organisms in the period 2008-2016 in Romania. Based on the statistical data of the plant sector, for the period 2010-2016, it is now taking shape that ecological agriculture was not a stable sector in Romania, having a constant evolution, in the years of study 2014-2016. Romania has great opportunities for promotion and development of organic agriculture due to the utilised agricultural area of 14.8 million ha and of the soils of unpolluted groundwater.
