CCOF Report Documents Benefits of Organic Agriculture
At its annual conference, CCOF released Roadmap to an Organic California: Benefits Report, which distills the findings of more than 300 peer-reviewed scientific studies. The report details the many benefits that organic production is already generating and could generate on a far larger scale with increased organic acreage. “Organic food production is an opportunity to stimulate the state’s economy, promote public health, and protect our natural resources,” said Kelly Damewood, CEO of CCOF. “The report finds that organic agriculture provides evidence-based solutions to the nation’s complex challenges by promoting healthy, carbon-storing soils while also driving strong economic returns and improving public health and prosperity.” The Benefits Report is available as a free download or in printed format.
