The 13th Annual Iowa Organic Conference is scheduled for Nov. 17 – 18. The conference will be held in Iowa City at the Iowa Memorial Union.
A field day Aug. 20 at the Iowa State University Neely-Kinyon Farm will cover the topics of sustainable and organic agriculture. The field day will begin at 4 p.m. and includes a light supper.
Producers making the switch to organic crops to meet growing market demand not only fetch premium prices, according to a recent study; they also build healthy soil and sequester carbon, making organic agriculture a useful strategy for dealing with climate change.
