    Evaluation of Organic Barley Varieties and Organic Popcorn Varieties and Fertilization

Abstract

According to the USDA National Organic Program, certified organic farmers must source organic seed (seed from organically raised crops). The organic seed industry is currently growing in Iowa and the Midwest, and with this growth, organic growers are looking for university-based recommendations on organic varieties to use in Iowa. The Organic Agriculture Program at Iowa State University has been using organic seed at the Southeast Research Farm for 13 years. In addition, a new organic fertilizer (Biotic Organic™ 4-4-4, Perfect Blend, Bellevue, WA) was tested in 2014 for organic popcorn production.
