126 Symposium--Sustainability Challenges in Organic Agriculture
Oral SessionASA Section: Agronomic Production Systems
Organic practices have evolved over the past several decades and will likely continue do so as new products and methods are developed, and as scientific research provides new insights into more sustainable strategies. There are many questions and concerns about whether current organic regulations are adequate to ensure that certified systems are consistent with sustainability goals. Should organic farmers be allowed to use some prohibited inputs? Should some allowed inputs be more restricted? Should regulations be more specific about soil management practices? This symposium will use a novel format, five minute videos, to encourage input from a variety of perspectives.
