January 18, 2011: 09:19 PM EST

South Korea's Ministry for Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries will launch a 4.46 trillion won green farming development program seeking to expand the local organic food industry fourfold into a 2-trillion won market by 2015. Up to 60 percent of the budget will go to construction of related infrastructure. Plans also include the creation of up to 50 eco-friendly farming regions throughout the country. This will help increase the volume of crops grown without the use of agricultural chemicals, and reduce use of chemical fertilizers 3% each year from 2011 to 2015.
