Welcome to the Iowa State University Organic Agriculture website. Our mission is to educate producers, consumers and policy makers in the research and extension activities in Organic Agriculture both on-farm and in the Universities.
Organic Agriculture involves a production management system based on the ecological principles of nutrient cycling, biotic regulation of pests and biodiversity. Synthetic fertilizers and pesticides are replaced by sunlight-based inputs, such as plant and animal residues. Premium prices for certified organic products drive the immediate economic benefits of Organic Agriculture. Long-term benefits to human and environmental health are also derived through these practices. We encourage you to explore this website and send us your comments or questions.
ISU operates an Organic Agriculture Program to provide research information and extension presentations for Iowa citizens. Field Days, workshops and an ICN series on organics are held throughout the year.
Washington State University, a world-renowned leader in agricultural research, is the first in the nation to offer an online certificate in the growing field of organic agriculture. Students who complete the organic agriculture certificate at WSU will be well-prepared to work on or develop their own organic farm. The online certificate is ideal for agricultural professionals, home gardeners, and anyone who wants to start a community supported agriculture farm.
