North Dakota organic producers, processors can still get help with 2014 certification costs


BISMARCK, North Dakota — Organic farmers, ranchers, processors and handlers in North Dakota still have about three weeks left to apply for help paying their certification costs.

Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says organic producers can receive up to $750 for the federal fiscal year 2014, which concluded at the end of September. The deadline to apply is Oct. 31.

Goehring says the National Organic Cost Share Program has provided North Dakota with $99,000 for certification reimbursements.

Certification enables producers to label and sell their organic products with a federal seal assuring they were produced with recognized organic methods.
