“Going organic” is a diversification strategy and production shift continuing to grow in popularity throughout the United States. Organics are a promising prospect for farmers and their trusted advisers and consultants. The need to “speak organic” is increasing every year and this webinar will give on-farm advisers some of the vocabulary necessary to start the conversation with their grower clients. This webinar will introduce the organic transition process in grain crops, provide an overview of organic grain production, and dig into the economics of the transition into certified organic farming and marketing.
