USDA offers technical assistance for organic producers

USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Oregon Acting State Conservationist Danny Burgett reminds potential applicants to contact their local NRCS office soon to find out if they are eligible for the agency's Organic Initiative. Applications for the final ranking period of 2012 are due at NRCS offices by close of business on June 1, 2012. Nationwide, NRCS has nearly $50 million in financial and technical assistance available to certified organic producers, those who want to make the transition to organic production, and producers who sell less than $5,000 in organic products annually.

The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) Organic Initiative offers a wide array of conservation practices specifically designed for organic production. Organic Initiative conservation practices in Oregon include buffer strips, conservation crop rotation, cover crops, drip irrigation, fencing, field borders, mulching, nutrient management, pest management and others. This is the final ranking period for this year's Organic Initiative. If you are a current or transitioning organic producer, please visit your local USDA service center as soon as possible.
