This producer-initiated conference is built around farmer to farmer skill sharing and attracts experienced growers from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, and beyond. Farmer panelists representing small, mid, and large scale operations will cover technical production information on garlic, onions, peppers, and one-cut salad heads. Management topics include vegetable no-till, greenhouse management, training and retaining labor, and variety selection. Detailed handouts provide an invaluable resource long after the conference ends. New this year will be summaries of farm employee compensation and variety data collected through optional participant surveys.
