Civil Eats features organic cotton research from The Organic Center
Civil Eats takes a deep dive into the benefits of organic cotton production, featuring the research collaboration between Dr. Kathleen Delate from Iowa State and The Organic Center. The piece explores the mismatch between consumer demand for organic cotton and its supply, asking what will it take for farmers to grow more organic cotton? This question is addressed by a survey conducted by TOC and Iowa State that asked U.S. small-scale organic cotton producers about the benefits of and the barriers to increased organic cotton production.
