NASHVILLE (AP) – Tennessee has $170,000 available for certified organic farmers and those transitioning to organic agriculture.

The money is part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Organic Initiative, which helps plan and implement conservation practices that allow their organic operations to be environmentally sustainable.

Some of these practices include cover crops, nutrient and pest management and crop rotation.

Acting State Conservationist John Rissler said in a USDA news release that implementing conservation practices will help producers meet the requirements of their USDA organic system plans and stay in compliance with the national organic program.

Signup for the Organic Initiative goes through mid-May.
