Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SARE) has released a new bulletin, Transitioning to Organic Production, that lays out basic transition strategies for livestock, field crop, and horticultural systems, including a summary of the certification process and the National Organic Program standards. Practices common to all organic systems are also addressed. The free publication also outlines how organic production practices, paired with sound transition strategies such as flexible timelines, using alternative labels, and coordinating with NRCS programs, can help farmers successfully navigate the transition process.
