Biodiversity & Natural Resource Monitoring Log

Organic production must integrate cultural, biological and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance and conserve natural resources. Certified organic operations must select, carry out and record production practices that “maintain or improve the natural resources of the operation,” (NOP §205.200). This template can be used to record observations made on a daily, weekly, monthly or annual basis to monitor the effectiveness of the Biodiversity Conservation & Natural Resource Management plan outlined in OSP form G4.2.
