BISMARCK, North Dakota — Producers and processors of organic food in North Dakota can apply for help paying their certification costs.

Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says applications are now being accepted through the National Organic Cost Share Program for fiscal 2014. Organic farmers, ranchers, handlers and processors can receive up to $750. Applications are due Oct. 31.

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.

The national program last year provided $99,000 in certification reimbursements in North Dakota.
