Improve your crop rotation and increase profitability with grains and other high-value crops
First of two grain presentations at the 2018 NOFA-NJ Winter Conference:
Dr. Elizabeth Dyck, Organic Growers’ Research and Information-Sharing Network (OGRIN)
The strong and steady consumer demand in the Northeast for local food coupled with improved access to affordable, small-scale grain equipment is providing organic farmers with profitable options to diversify their crop rotations. Learn about high-value possibilities—from the small grains to ancient and heritage wheats, oilseed crops, hemp and more. Newly available, affordable, effective processing equipment, e.g., mills, dehullers, rollers, will also be covered. Plus learn about the new NE SARE-funded project that will work to support specialty crop production, processing, and marketing.
Location: Rutgers Douglass Student Center, New Brunswick, NJ. For registration and more information, go to https://nofanj.org/winter-conference.
