Texas Organic Research Center (TORC)


The mission of TORC is to provide research and information to homeowners, farmers, ranchers and other decision makers with the goal of helping stop the broad scale use of toxic chemical pesticides and fertilizers which are currently being sold and used in the futile attempt to grow crops and control insect pests and diseases.

TORC's position is that natural organic products and techniques work better in every way, including from an economic standpoint and actually improve the health of the soil as well as the production of plants and livestock. In short, TORC's goal is to improve health and thus quality of life by making natural organic management programs the new mainstream.

The basic theory is that Nature knows best. Soil should be improved with compost and other natural organic fertilizers, rock minerals and natural mulches. Research exists to back that theory, TORC's job is to provide additional research and classroom education based on current knowledge of natural organic techniques.  More on TORC
