This webinar provides critical information on the new NOP Natural Resources and Biodiversity Conservation Guidance.
Organic operations must follow the National Organic Program’s (NOP) regulations. The NOP Natural Resources and Biodiversity Conservation Guidance, which interprets these regulations, helps organic producers and their certification personnel determine which conservation practices are appropriate. Biodiversity conservation in organic agriculture varies in a continuum from simple to complex stewardship practices.
In this webinar we will share effective strategies for farmers and certifiers on how to ensure organic farms are in compliance. We will discuss USDA NRCS opportunities that support producers in their efforts to implement many of conservation practices. We will also share examples that suggest compliance, and minor and major issues related to the Guidance.
