GRO Research for Soil Health + Climate Change

GRO Research for Soil Health + Climate Change

Climate change is collectively our most pressing issue and there has never been a better time to weigh-in on why organic is part of the solution. In partnership with The Organic Center, we are looking to advance a powerful portfolio of soil health and climate change research that delivers undisputable proof points on the positive impacts of organic.

Through collaborations with leading research institutions like Harvard University, the University of Maryland, and the University of California at Riverside, we have a hit list of projects that will fill vital gaps in our knowledge and meet essential needs for on-farm solutions.

GRO Immediate Action Package

The Organic Center has developed a suite of complementary research projects focused on moving the needle toward a more sustainable climate. It provides organic farmers with science-based, actionable recommendations for improving soil health, increasing carbon sequestration and reducing emissions of the nitrous oxide -- one of the most potent agricultural greenhouse gasses. It also connects these environmentally friendly practices with real-world gains for farmers by accounting for economic considerations such as yield. Finally, it will provide scientifically rigorous quantification of the climate change benefits of organic farming, the net positive impacts of organic, and deliver a positive platform for communicating those benefits to the public.
