The Organic Center hosted a science session during OTA’s Policy Conference last week in Washington D.C. Panelists in attendance at the meeting included Professor Jane Dever of Texas A & M University, Mathieu Ngouajio (Program Manager at USDA-NIFA), Brise Tencer (Executive Director of the Organic Farming Research Foundation), and Chris Messer (Chief of the Census Planning Branch at USDA-NASS). The panel focused on research priorities and new funding opportunities available for funding organic data collection and research. Panelists discussed environmental, health, and applied research needs areas, as well as funding sources for organic scientific research, such as public grants, private foundations, and industry partnerships.
