Fun facts about the 2023 OGRAIN Conference
A wide variety of growers attended the conference!
It was an equal mix of new organic farmers, experienced organic farmers, and farmers who were not currently farming organically.
Farmers reported learning a lot about incorporating cover crops, organic fertility management and organic no-till practices.
Growers agreed that what they learned at the conference will have a positive impact on their operations.
Conversations started at the OGRAIN conference continue year-round.
