“Thanks again for putting on such a wonderful conference. We had so much fun and learned so much. It was a great line-up of speakers that brought very useful and challenging info, but also very encouraging and motivating.” Carl Gaudian, Albert Lea Seeds
“I found value in all sessions that I attended. I particularly enjoyed lab updates from the Silva lab, Lea Vereecke, the organic disease management update from the Smith lab, and the equipment selection panel. I appreciated that the vast majority of presentations were either farmer experiences or evidence-based extension-related talks.” 2023 OGRAIN Conference attendee
Videos and powerpoint presentations from OGRAIN conferences offer a wealth of valuable learning. Find them from the OGRAIN Resources page.
