How to join the webinar?

Participate in this webinar to learn about new guidance from the National Organic Program concerning natural resources and biodiversity conservation.


USDA organic regulations broadly require operations to “maintain or improve the natural resources of the operation, including soil and water quality.” Given the wide scope of this language, the USDA National Organic Program has released new guidance concerning Natural Resources and Biodiversity Conservation. The guidance provides examples of practices that support these conservation principles and demonstrate compliance with USDA organic regulations. This webinar will discuss the guidance and opportunities for USDA NRCS to support producers as they implement these conservation practices.

In the Understanding Organic Agriculture series, this webinar is presented by USDA NRCS Science and Technology. Contact Ben Bowell, Organic Specialist, for more information about this webinar.
