BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Organic Cost Share Program is accepting applications.

The program helps producers and processors of organic food pay their certification costs. North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says they can receive up to $750 of the costs paid between Oct. 1, 2014, and Sept. 30 of this year. Applications are due Nov. 16.

Certification enables organic producers and processors to label and sell their products with a federal seal that assures consumers the products were produced using recognized organic methods.

Goehring says the program last year provided $88,100 in certification reimbursements in North Dakota.
