In the Spotlight
NCAT Awarded National Grant
Is organic farming risky? NCAT will be taking an in-depth look at that question over the next four years, thanks to a 0,000 USDA National Institute for Food and Agriculture Organic Research and Extension Initiative Program grant to explore organic farming’s risk as well as whether the general lack of quality crop insurance acts as a barrier to the expansion of diversified organic systems of food production and markets.
Since 1976 the National Center for Appropriate Technology has been serving economically disadvantaged people by providing information and access to appropriate technologies that can help improve their lives. Learn more about NCAT
