AgFunder recently reported on AgriSecure, a Nebraska based start-up, and their partnership with Farmer’s Business Network (FBN). They have team up to help row crop farmers transition into and succeed at organic farming.

Louisa Burwood-Taylor writes, “the US is a major net importer of organic grains from countries such as India, Turkey, and Romania; in the major grains, 99% of US farm acreage is in conventional, non-organic production.”
