Washington state makes progress on organics

Document Actions
The article on organic agriculture clearly lays out the challenges and opportunities in this area (HCN, 12/26/05: A New Green Revolution). Although our universities are lagging behind growers and consumers, as pointed out by a sidebar, Washington State University is poised to offer an undergraduate degree in Organic Agriculture Systems as early as 2006. The Legislature may also increase the funding this year for a comprehensive statewide program (BIOAg) that promotes sustainable agricultural practices, benefiting both conventional and organic farmers.
