OTA’s CEO/Executive Director Laura Batcha will moderate a session entitled “Transforming the Rural Economy: The Outlook for Organic Agriculture” as part of USDA’s 2016 Agricultural Outlook Forum to be held Feb 25 and 26 in Arlington, Virginia. The organic session will address the outlook for organic producers and the challenges of supplying organic markets. According to USDA, as organic agriculture has grown and become part of the mainstream, the need for market information and market outlook has also grown. This is an exciting achievement for the organic sector! The event will be attended by thousands of agricultural stakeholders—producers, policymakers, and agricultural officials—from around the world.
