GRANTEE PROFILE:
Rodale Institute has pioneered groundbreaking research in organic agriculture for over 60 years. It advocates for policies that support farmers, and educates people about the benefits of organic practices. The Institute’s Farming Systems Trial® is the longest-running side-by-side U.S. study comparing conventional chemical agriculture with organic methods (demonstrating that organic yields equal conventional, and outperform them in years of drought). New areas of study include rates of carbon sequestration, and new techniques for weed suppression.
