Fall NOSB Meeting
The National Organic Standards Board will hold its fall meeting in Jacksonville, Florida, October 31 - November 2. The board intends to discuss organic imports, review sunsetting of accepted inputs for organic operations and new petitions, a proposal to eliminate the incentive to convert native ecosystems to organic crop production, and, for the third time, the question as to whether hydroponic/aquaponic operations should be allowed to be certified organic. We encourage everyone who has a stake in organic production to make their opinions known in advance of this meeting. For more information, see the Policy Page.
