There has never been a better time to engage in organic research. As consumer demand and organic acreage grows, producers need answers and innovation regarding production systems, pest management, nutrition, marketing, economics, genetics, and more. Recognizing these needs, the 2019 Farm Bill substantially increased funding for organic research.
Faculty, students, county educators, and staff members interested in organic research are encouraged to join us on Thursday, November 21, 8:30-noon, to learn more about research needs and resources available for addressing them. We will meet at the Wooster campus and encourage you to join us in person, but zoom attendance is also available. The program will include Invited speakers from the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association, USDA-NIFA, and other regional organic research partners.
