Regenerative organic certification takes shape

Written by John Mowbray

WASHINGTON – A new standard for regenerative organic agriculture, which applies to cotton production is now in the process of being set up by a coalition of farmers, nonprofits, scientists, and brands such as Patagonia in collaboration with the certification body NSF International, which is facilitating a public comment process to ensure broad stakeholder engagement as the protocol is developed.

Led by the Rodale Institute, the move aims to increase soil organic matter over time, improve animal welfare, provide economic stability and fairness for farmers to create resilient regional ecosystems and communities.
