Why should I participate in the Organic Production Survey?
Your response will help shape decisions regarding farm policy, funding allocations, availability of goods and services, community development and other key issues. For example:
- RMA’s Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC) will use the information published to provide better insurance coverage for organic crops, as required by the 2008 Farm Bill.
- USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service will use the detailed data on agricultural products produced using organic practices to enhance programs like the Environmental Quality Incentives Program.
- USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service will use the information to evaluate the potential expansion of the Market Access Program to allow for more exports of organic agricultural products.
