BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Organic farmers, ranchers, processors and handlers can apply to have some of their certification costs reimbursed.

State Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says the federal Organic Cost Share Program is now accepting applications for fiscal 2016.

Organic producers can receive up to $750 of the certification costs they paid between October 2015 and September of this year. The deadline to apply is Nov. 16. About $88,000 is available for North Dakota producers, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Certification enables producers to label and sell their organic products with a federal seal assuring they were produced with recognized organic methods.
