CCOF has issued a reminder that the last day for the public to submit comments to the National Organic Program on the Organic Research, Promotion, and Information Order is April 19. The Organic Check-Off would create a 17-member governance board of stakeholders who would decide on allocating research, promotion, and technical assistance funds raised through a payment of one-tenth of 1% of an operation's net organic sales each year. Any certified operation with a gross organic revenue of less than $250,000 annually would be able to opt out of the program. Comments can be submitted online.
