Balancing Soil Health and Food Safety for Organic Fresh Produce Production

This research collaboration "Multi-Regional Risk Analysis of Farm Manure Use" is a USDA Organic Agriculture Research and Extension Initiative (OREI) funded project, focused on furthering the study of the use of animal-based manure in organic agricultural practices in order to best prevent the risk of soil pathogens. Alda Pires, University of California Cooperative Extension specialist, is the lead PI, and the project also includes researchers from the University of California, Davis, University of Minnesota, University of Maine, the USDA Agricultural Research Service’s Beltsville Agricultural Research Center, USDA’s Economic Research Service Resource and Rural Economics Division, Cornell University, and The Organic Center.
