Enhancing Organic Agriculture in Oregon

Source:

A report from Oregon State University and Oregon Tilth offers insights into how to enhance organic agriculture in Oregon. Unlike traditional agriculture research assessments, the report reaches beyond the farm, capturing the points of view of a variety of organic community stakeholders—local retailers, farmers’ market managers, produce distributors, farm to school program staff, and nonprofit organizations that advocate for sustainable agriculture—and OSU organic agriculture researchers.

The report uses survey data, interviews, and focus groups to explore organic agriculture from a variety of perspectives and identify targets for research, education, and policy.
