Material Review

Organic is complicated. But it doesn’t have to be.

Material Review for Organic Production

You need a co-pilot in navigating today’s changing landscape for materials used in organic production. WDA is that experienced co-pilot in providing guidance every step of the way for your products used to grow organic crops, raise organic livestock and process organic foods. For example, we can provide advice on:

  • Fertilizers and crop tools such as pest, weed or disease management products
  • Livestock management tools such as feed additives, pest control and other health care products
  • Processing aids used in food and feed production
  • Non-agricultural (nonorganic) materials allowed as ingredients in organic foods

WDA performs compliance reviews for these products to determine if they are allowed for use in organic production in accordance with NOP standards. If they are NOP-compliant, we can also assist with Material Review Organization (MRO) applications such as OMRI Listing, CDFA Organic Input Material Registration, or WSDA Input Material Registration.

For materials that are not currently allowed in organic production but perhaps should be, we can provide feasibility studies, guidance and assistance with writing petitions to add materials to the National List.
