Presenter: Betsy Rakola, USDA National Organic Program
Hear about the USDA’s current work on organic agriculture from two of USDA’s organic leaders. We’ll discuss proposed livestock regulations, sound and sensible certification, National List updates, crop insurance for organic producers, the 2015 organic producer survey, and research programs. We’ll also discuss USDA’s stakeholder engagement, education, and outreach strategies as well as the role of the National Organic Standards Board in providing advice and recommendations to USDA. Questions are welcome.
