2018 Organic Farming Research Conference: Friday, January 26

The Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFRF), in partnership with Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Jersey and Rutgers University, will host the 2018 Organic Farming Research Conference on Friday January 26, 2018 at Rutgers University immediately preceding the NOFA-NJ Annual Winter Conference. The symposium will feature talks from researchers, farmer and rancher researchers, students, and other agriculture specialists on topics related to organic farming and food systems, as well as from other systems of sustainable agriculture that employ techniques compatible with organic standards. The intent of the symposium is to provide current information to farmers, ranchers, extension staff, educators, agricultural professionals, and others interested in organic agriculture.
