Effective On-farm Research for Organic Field Crop Producers

Tuesday, November 28, 10:00 AM - 11:00 PM   

This workshop will cover effective and practical "how to" for farmers doing (or wanting to do) good on-farm research. From pre-season planning to final harvest, this session will cover the importance of on-farm research in the organic context; how to design your research project to meet your specific needs; best practices for research design, methodologies, observation, and final evaluation. Drawing on case studies of alternative cover crop research in Iowa, this session will illustrate the impact of good on-farm research for organic field crop producers.
