Urgent information request:
We are trying to compile a list of all research facilities that have
experimental ground dedicated to organic farming methods. If anyone knows
of such situations, please e-mail us here <email@example.com>.
By "organic ground" we mean that the ground is (or could be) certified for
organic production by an independent organic certification body.
We'd like to know 1) How long has the ground been recognized by the
institution as organic? 2)What is the formal/administrative status of this
ground, i.e., how "dedicated" is it? 3)Is the ground actually certified
organic? By whom? 4) If it is not certified, has any consideration been
given to the idea, or have any particular obstacles been encountered? 5)What
research activity is taking place on the ground?
We are hoping to compile this information and make it available to SANET
very soon. Thanks for your help!
