Long-term successful managers of organic farms not only use a deliberate management approach to transitioning crop acres, but also employ a mindset that focuses on a long-term, systems-based approach to crop rotation, marketing, and economics. Crop sequence, pest and nutrient management strategies, and cash flow need to be strategized in tandem to optimize ecosystem services, labor and equipment needs, and income across individual seasons and multiple years. This webinar will discuss key considerations and shifts in thinking that must occur to enable organic operations to be productive and profitable in the short and long term.
