US: Publication offers guidance for conservation buffers in organic systems

A newly released publication, Conservation Buffers in Organic Systems: Western
State Implementation Guide, provides technical guidance to conservation planners working with organic producers. Specifically, Conservation Buffers provides guidance on installing buffers in organic production systems to meet the National Organic
Program (NOP) regulations. This resource is part of a five-guide series that will enable the federal Environmental Quality Incentives (EQIP) Program to be more responsive to and valuable for organic farmers. The guide is the result of a partnership between Oregon Tilth's Organic Conservation Program, the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT), the Xerces Society and USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), funded by a grant from Western Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (WSARE).
