This work is about the development of organic farming in Austria although the conventional cultivation will not be ignored. In particular, one most important chapter is the question about growing of organic soybeans. Finally, a lesson planning on ?Organic Farming? is found.The first part shows the conventional cultivation, where the pest control and genetic engineering are brought up. Genetic engineering seems to become more or less indispensable.The biological farming is devoted to another chapter, in which the organic farming and the development in Austria are especially discussed. Also the legal principles, controls and labelling of organic products and the fertilization for the organic farmers are mentioned. It is also very important to introduce the success and the downside of organic agriculture, because there is always a pro and a contra to this issue. The next chapter deals with soy, in which the history of soy bean, the differences between conventional and organic origin of soy, the consequences of genetically modified soy, the cultivation of soy beans and the production of soy products in Austria and worldwide is discussed intensively. As a teacher in the future, Im very interested in the outworking of this topic in the classroom. Therefore a chapter is devoted preparing lessons.The target of my thesis is to study the development of organic farming in Austria and find out why and how it has changed over the years. Also it is about how to create this topic optimal for studies. The course of my work shows that this form of agriculture, up to a short decrease in 2001 is becoming more and more popular.In recent years, the organic agriculture has become a common economic system not only in Austria, but rather worldwide and there is more and more interest and estimation by the consumers. This increased the demand for high quality and above all healthy foods.
