Organic Farming Handbook Available from USDA


The National Organic Farming Handbook published by USDA is now available to download. It provides an overview of organic agriculture and the National Organic Program (NOP), as well as information on conservation planning and activities.

This resource was developed to support Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) planners and other agricultural professionals as they work with organic producers. The handbook was developed by a team comprised of NRCS staff and partner organizations from across the country and from a range of disciplines.
