The WSU 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 94% of the state’s organic acreage in 2012. Oregon Tilth Certified Organic (OTCO) certified 5% of reported 2012 acreage; a few additional certifiers, such as International Certification Services (ICS), California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF), and Quality Assurance International (QAI), among others, certified the balance.
