by Redaktion (comments: 0)
The Organic Center has unveiled its newly re-designed website, which aims to bring people the science behind organic. Since coming on board as The Center’s Director of Science Programs in mid-February, Jessica Shade, Ph.D., has been actively building scientific resources for the organic community and developing ways to communicate the findings of credible, peer-reviewed science and research exploring the health and environmental benefits of organic food and farming. The Generations of Organic website reflects the results of the center’s evolving work, and will be updated on a regular basis to reflect the most current research in the organic sector.
The features of Generations of Organic include summaries of the most up-to date scientific studies on organic issues such as pesticide avoidance, nutrition, and sustainable farming; monthly interviews with scientists doing cutting-edge research on hot-topic issues, organic recipes detailing the scientific background of the main ingredients, and a blog about arising topics and areas of organic interest. In addition to its role in communicating the science behind organic, the center funds cutting-edge research designed to advance the understanding of the benefits of organic, and ways to improve organic food and farming.
Current projects will be described in detail on the website, and now include investigating the effects of organic farming practices on nitrogen pollution, finding ways to decrease arsenic uptake in organic rice systems, and reporting on organic fire blight prevention efforts in tree fruit management.
