USDA hosting organic farming session

Jeff Caldwell 09/07/2011 @ 10:18am Multimedia Editor for Agriculture.com and Successful Farming magazine.

Federal officials are looking at making some changes to current organic farming regulations and supports and they are asking for public input.

USDA officials will hold a public listening session on the future of the agency's "activities and priorities related to supporting organic agriculture production, handling and markets" on September 20 in Washington, D.C. Specifically, officials are offering opportunity for comments on:

  • Activities and priorities of the USDA National Organic Program, other than those specific to the business and work plans of the National Organic Standards Board
  • Activities and priorities of USDA agencies and programs beyond the USDA National Organic Program.

If you're unable to participate in person, you can log on to USDA's live webcast of the event.
