Organic Agronomy Training Series-Central 2019
This 2-day training will increase the skill and impact of extension staff, agency personnel, consultants, advisers, educators, and technical service providers on organic production systems and USDA-NOP regulatory compliance. The program will build participants knowledge base in all key areas of certified organic production.

We will begin with a full program of classroom discussions and farmer panels on Wednesday, August 14 highlighting the basics of successful organic production. Continuing Thursday morning, the program will be followed by an afternoon in the field on a nearby certified organic farm.
The full program with exact times and activities for August 14 and 15 will be posted here in early June. We expect to run from 9 to 5 on Weds. and 8 to 5 on Thursday.
