Washington State University's Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources has compiled state organic crop acreage statistics since 2004, providing annual updates containing current, detailed information for use in farm and business planning, decision making, and risk management. The Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) has historically been the primary certifier working in the state, certifying an estimated 90% or more of the state’s annual organic acreage. Oregon Tilth Certified Organic (OTCO) has typically certified 5-8% of the acreage; a few additional certifiers, such as California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF), Quality Assurance International (QAI), Stellar Certification Services, and International Certification Services (ICS), among others, certified the balance. This publication contains a series of tables with numerical data on organic farm number and acreage (2006-2014), and sales (2006-2013).
