OneCert is part of a coalition of highly respected organic certifiers who worked together to create a position statement concerning the fundamental principle that organic agriculture is–and should continue to be–soil-based agriculture. This position has since been endorsed by a number of organizations who still stand behind the idea that organic terrestrial crop production is a soil-based activity.
Now it is your turn to stand up for soil!
Together, we can keep soil and integrity in the organic agriculture movement!
