2nd Annual Organic Vegetable Production Conference

February 2, 2018 @ 9:00 AM - February 3, 2018 @ 4:00 PM

Farmer panelists representing small, mid, and large scale operations will cover technical production information on several vegetable crops enhanced with photos and detailed handouts. Alongside the production track, we will cover advanced management topics including niche hoop house crops and “right-sizing” the farm. New to the conference this year will be facilitated large group discussions on tools, labor, and more. Extension professionals will round out the line up with research and expertise on pest and disease management.

Presenters include:

  • Hans Bishop of PrairiErth Farm (IL) on cauliflower
  • Ariel Pressman of Seed to Seed Farm (MN) on cucumbers
  • Andy Cotter of York Farm (MN) on Strawberries
  • Dennis Fiser of Regenerative Roots (WI) on Tomatoes
  • Robyn Calvey of Park Ridge Organics (WI) on hoop house celery
  • Russ Groves of UW Extension on organic pest management
  • And many more!
