The Benefits of Technical Assistance for the Organic Industry
Technical Assistance is at the nexus of the organic industry’s biggest opportunities. The lack of organic-specific technical assistance is cited as one of the main barriers for farmers transitioning to and staying in organic production. Investments in technical assistance are important for all organic stakeholders who want to grow domestic organic acreage and maximize the benefits of organic for people and the planet.
At the Organic Trade Association’s March 19th at 1 pm webinar hear from Mallory Krieger of Organic Agronomy Training Service (OATS) and Ben Bowell of USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and Oregon Tilth, who are at the forefront of the mission to expand access to technical assistance for organic and transitioning farmers across production systems, scales, and geographic regions.
The webinar is open to all.
