The article is devoted to the relevant topic of the application of information systems and technologies in organic agriculture. The authors substantiate the importance of using such systems to improve the efficiency and competitiveness of farms in the context of green economy development. There is a need to implement IT solutions to optimize business processes, accounting, data analysis, logistics, and sale of organic products. Based on the study of the positive experience of countries with developed organic production on the use of specialized information systems, it is concluded that the introduction of digital technologies, technologies involving automation of production, technological and management processes, will contribute to the long-term development of organic agribusiness, will produce better products with less harm to the environment, and will also increase the efficiency of organic production due to more economical use of resources. At the same time, the author points out a number of limitations: high cost of implementation, lack of qualified personnel among farmers, insufficiently developed infrastructure in rural areas. Nevertheless, the author sees the prospects for the development of organic agriculture in the creation of cloud solutions, integration with mobile technologies, the use of big data and artificial intelligence at all stages of the movement of products from the manufacturer to the consumer. In general, the article is of practical value, gives an idea of the current level and prospects of organic agriculture digitalization.
