Description
Organic Agriculture Research and Extension Initiative Funding Available
Deadline: March 1, 2018 
The organic industry is the fastest growing segment of U.S. agriculture. According to a recent survey by the National Agricultural Statistics Service, U.S. farmers and ranchers alone sold $7.6 billion in certified organic commodities in 2016.
To sustain this growth, NIFA established programs designed to address critical challenges of the organic industry. These programs cover the entire value-chain of organic products and include both food and non-food products.
The Organic Agriculture Research and Extension Initiative (OREI) supports research, education, and extension programs that enhance the ability of producers and processors who have already adopted organic standards to grow and market high quality organic agricultural products. 
Priority areas include biological, physical, and social science research, including economics. Funded projects will aid farmers and ranchers with whole-farm planning by delivering practical, research-based information to improve their ability to develop an Organic System Plan required for certification.
