Organic farmers are innovators by nature, and their practices often serve as models for others. With U.S. sales of organic reaching over $60 billion in 2020, organic farm practices are having a rippling effect throughout agriculture.
In principle, organic farms have more diverse farmscapes and are helping to address biodiversity loss. In reality, some do and some don't. However, they are required to conserve biodiversity as part of the National Organic Program (NOP) regulations, and the NOP’s Natural Resources and Biodiversity Conservation Guidance that WFA initially wrote is helping with that.
