Organic Farming

INTRODUCTION TO ORGANIC FARMING

Organic farming is a prevalent sector of New England agriculture. Certified organic agriculture requires special management considerations to respond to standards developed by the USDA National Organic Program. Our program works with organic farmers on outreach programs both at the local and national levels. Our organic dairy research is conducted on-farm and has focused on annual crop production, including variety selections and evaluation of agronomic practices like specialized tillage and roller crimping. dotted-line-large
