A CLUSTER OF ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS
SUPPORT RESEARCH IN ORGANIC AGRICULTURE
Since 2009, the Organic Science Clusters regroups research activities dedicated to organic agriculture.
The Organic Federation of Canada and the Organic Agriculture Centre of Canada at Dalhousie University are launching the 4th Organic Science Cluster that will include 26 research activities, funded by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) AgriScience Program and the Canadian organic industry.

The research priorities of the Organic Cluster 4 Project
Organic agriculture develops sustainable solutions, supports resiliency while maintaining economic growth. The research activities are categorized under 4 major priorities.
8 activities address climate change, focusing on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction or carbon sequestration.
6 activities address environmental sustainability, focusing on soil health, water quality, air quality and biodiversity.
Economic growth & development
7 activities support economic growth: increase in productivity, reduction in labour costs, decrease in use of inputs.
6 activities prioritize resiliency: ecological responses to weed control, resistance to drought, enhancing food security.
