Survey open to organic producers, those transitioning to organic
The Organic Farming Research Foundation and Organic Seed Alliance are looking for input from certified organic producers and producers transitioning to organic certification through an organic survey. The survey, which opened Feb. 18, is part of a U.S. Department of Agriculture-funded project seeking to learn more about the challenges and research priorities of organic farmers and ranchers, and those transitioning land to certified organic production.
Survey results will be published in updated versions of OFRF’s National Organic Research Agenda (NORA) report and OSA’s State of Organic Seed (SOS) report, both of which have been invaluable resources for ensuring research funding is relevant and responsive to the needs of organic producers, while also identifying where additional investment is necessary. By collaborating on these surveys, OFRF and OSA hope to reduce survey fatigue and increase grower participation.
