Started in 1998, the WVU Organic Research project has a multidisciplinary team that conducts research and education of all aspects of organic crop production including horticulture, agronomy, soil science, animal science, soil biology, plant pathology, entomology, weed science and agricultural economics.


West Virginia University’s Organic Research, Education and Outreach Center is among the largest certified organic research farms dedicated to teaching, research and outreach. The Farm is one of the integral research facilities of the Division of Plant & Soil Sciences in the WVU Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design.

The Organic Agriculture Farm provides a forum to link discovery with application. Research and teaching efforts support an increasing number of organic growers and gardeners. Opportunities abound for undergraduate and graduate student learning, and collaborative research endeavors involving a wide variety of academic disciplines offered by West Virginia University.
