Organic farming is a modern concept which combines several factors such as tradition, innovation, science with the principles of health and ecology. It uses the existing resources for the welfare of the humanity without harming the environment. Through its content, the aim of the paper is to present the evolution of the ecological agricultural sector at national level. The paper presents aspects regarding the data of the exploited surfaces, the number of certified operators, the average size of the existing operators, during 2010-2016 period. The analysis of the indicators in the present paper was performed using the method of comparison and the percentage method. In this regard, the relative importance of different types of activities in the vegetal sector is highlighted for the analysed reference market. The data presented indicate a certified average area of 252,752.08 ha, an average number of operators of 11,161 units and an average area of 22.64 ha per operator. In the studied range, grain crops prevail (35.17%), followed by permanent crops - pastures and hayfields (28.93%) and industrial crops (21.43%), while the lowest weights are held by other crops on arable land (0.14%).
