Crops Subcommittee

The Crops Subcommittee (CS) drafts recommendations for consideration by the Board to provide guidance, clarification or proposed standards of the crop production section of the organic regulations as contained in [7CFR Part 205] and OFPA. The CS reviews petitions, substances scheduled to sunset, technical advisory panel reports, and public comments concerning materials used for crop production which have been requested for addition to or removal from the National List. The CS occasionally works with other subcommittees to develop joint recommendations where crop issues are involved.
