The Kansas Department of Agriculture still has funds available in its Organic Certification Cost Share Program for producers who received their organic certification between Oct. 1, 2011, and Sept. 30, 2012.
The program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, reimburses producers for 75 percent, or up to $750, of their organic certification costs. The agency will accept applications until Dec. 14, or until all funds are distributed.
To receive the funds, producers must complete an application and submit it to the agency with a copy of their organic certification document and an invoice showing how much they paid for the certification.
