National Standards for Produce Marketed Organically
Final Organic Rule
The USDA Agricultural Marketing Service has asked us to
help get word to the Land-Grant community that there is a new
final rule that establishes national standards governing
agricultural products marketed as organically produced. For
more information on the new rule, the background and history
of the National Organic Program, see http://www.ams.usda.gov/nop/.
AMS calls particular attention to their set of fact sheets posted at
http://www.usda.gov/news/releases/2000/12/0425.htm for the
USDA press release.
