Leadership in Action
Apr 9, 2010
OFRF recently analyzed and helped the organic community assess the 400-plus pages of technical documents recently released by the USDA in its call for research proposals under the new Agriculture and Food research Initiative takes patience and commitment. On April 15th, OFRF will deliver recommendations to USDA on AFRI priorities.
At every turn over the last several years when organic research issues have been on the table in Washington, D.C., OFRF has been there, working on behalf of organic farmers and consumers.
Because of their persistence, scientists in the U.S. are starting to have access to meaningful public research support -- dollars that will both lead to new solutions on organic farms and more compelling insights into the environmental and consumer health benefits of organic food and farming. Thank you OFRF.
