California Organic Research Agenda Released

Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFRF) has published a new California Organic Research Agenda (CORA), a comprehensive report that examines current needs and challenges of organic farmers and ranchers across California and provides policy and research recommendations to address producer-identified issues. The 114-page CORA report is a companion to OFRF’s 2022 National Organic Research Agenda. The national organic survey data boasts responses from more than 1,100 producers and 16 listening sessions held across the United States. Using the California subset of the national survey data, the CORA report highlights the top production and non-production challenges cited by California’s organic farmers and ranchers.
