Project targets were: improvement in the economic risks associated with new production technologies, and the ability to manage changes in policy and regulation. Four workshops across New Mexico helped 102 producers determine what risks they face in transition to organic production and what strategies can mitigate those risks. Experienced organic producers with expertise in the type of production targeted for each workshop were available for individual consultation. To increase post-workshop follow-through, tasks will be assigned for completion following the workshop. At project´s end, 98 participants had an improved understanding of the risks and benefits associated with the transition to organic, 69 completed ATTRA compliance checklists, 72 identifed risks peculiar to their operation and steps to manage those risks; 6 completed the ATTRA Crop or Livestock Workbooks, and 4 applied for organic certification based on information and materials received in the workshop.
