In 1999, the Allee Farm was the first ISU farm to meet certified organic production standards and to certify acreage through the Organic Crop Improvement Association. In the first year organic trial at the Allee Farm in 1999, organic corn yields were 157 bushels/acre. In 2000, an organic soybean variety trial was planted on land formerly in alfalfa.
