It takes 36 months from the time of application for crop land to be certified organic. Can this be expedited?

Yes, if the person seeking the certification can go back in the field’s history and “testify” that the land has not received organic inputs in the form of seed, fertilizer, etc. The term is called an organic field affidavit. It can be used to bring in fields that have been under organic standards for 3 years or more. Whoever has been managing the fields for the preceding three years needs to sign and have notarized a statement stating that. It helps to have FSA records to show what crops have been grown on the fields, or some other records about the production.
