NOFA-NY’s ORGANIC RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM
SARATOGA SPRINGS HILTON
January 19th-20th, 2012 (preceding NOFA-NY’s Winter Conference)
NOFA-NY’s inaugural Organic Farming Symposium will take place on January 19th and 20th, 2012 at the Saratoga Springs Hilton. Join organic farmers from across the Northeast to hear from over 50 researchers–academics at some of this country’s most respected institutions, on-farm researchers, and PhD students–who will present their latest organic agricultural research projects. Engage in in-depth discussions with researchers and practitioners exploring the latest techniques for a successful organic farm. Share your own experiments and best practices with researchers and farmers.
Topics will cover organic fruit, vegetables, grains, soil, weed and pest management systems, ruminants and non-ruminants, and economics. Formats include one-on-one discussions with posters, panel sessions, and roundtables.
The goal of this Organic Research Symposium–NOFA-NY’s first ever–is to get farmers and researchers to meet, learn from one another, and collaborate moving forward.
