Science Supporting Organic and Applied Organic Research Needs

This workshop will cover the current science supporting organic agriculture, as well as the research needed to support organic farmers. Jessica Shade, director of science programs for the Organic Center, will recap the latest studies about the environmental and human health benefits of organic farming. Environmental studies show the benefits of organic practices for pollinators, water quality, climate change, biodiversity, and soil. Health studies have examined nutritional benefits, disease associations with specific pesticide exposure, and the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Brise Tencer, executive director of the Organic Farming Research Foundation, will address the multi-faceted needs for research and funding that foster resilient, profitable farming systems and help organic farmers improve crops. The discussion will highlight OFRF-funded research that provides crucial information and resources to farmers, and an overview of new and emerging priorities. 
 
This workshop is approved for 1.5 Professional Development CEUs for Certified Crop Advisors.
