U.S. farmland managed under organic systems expanded rapidly
throughout the 1990s, and that pace has continued as farmers strive
to meet consumer demand in both local and national markets. The
U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) implemented national organic
standards on organic production and processing in October 2002,
following more than a decade of development. The new uniform
standards are expected to facilitate further growth in the organic
farm sector. This report updates USDA estimates of land farmed with
organic practices for 2000 and 2001, and provides new estimates on
the number of certified organic operations in each State.
