AgriSecure account executives Kenn Jenkins and Pete Kapustka will share the company’s perspective on how to manage the transition process into organic production at the 2020 Minnesota Organic Conference.
Becoming an organic grower requires a field not having any prohibited substance or genetically modified crops on it for 36 months, and that time period can either set your organic operation up for struggles or success. Jenkins and Kapustka will discuss the three factors growers need to focus on for a successful transition process.
The two-day annual conference and tradeshow will be held on Jan. 9-10, 2020, at the River’s Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud, Minn. While the agenda for the 2020 conference has not been released, previous topics covered at the 2019 event included cover crop mixes for organic grain, raising organic livestock, soil health, and organic certification.
