All day - Common Ground Education Center, Unity
MOFGA's 2014 Spring Growth Conference will focus on practical,
whole-farm approaches to ecological weed management.
The day will include presentations by MOFGA Agricultural Services Staff Eric Sideman and Dave Colson, who will leverage their 60+ years of combined experience farming and advising their fellow farmers to discuss weed ecology and physiology and highlight real world, proven strategies to manage weeds from a whole-farm, ecological perspective.
The afternoon will feature a panel of farmers sharing their approaches to weed management across different scales and using various technologies. We will conclude with ample time for discussion and idea-sharing, giving everyone in attendance a chance to share their strategies and get their questions answered.
Registration includes lunch and resource materials.
