105: Real Organic Project co-director Linley Dixon addresses a crowd of farmers at the recent Eco-Farm conference, sharing her concerns about the money grab for “climate smart” agriculture projects that are focusing on increased chemical use. Meanwhile, organic, a systems-based approach, got little attention and is deemed too complex to measure.

She holds a Ph.D. in Plant Pathology from the University of Florida and also held a 2-year post-doctorate with the USDA’s Systematic Botany and Mycology Laboratory.
