© Prairie Organics2020: Think Whole Farm, Brandon, Manitoba, March 5-6, 2020

Prairie Organics  brings leading researchers together with producers because we believe that the best research is inspired by real world problems. If you are a researcher or a farmer with on-farm research results to share, we want to hear from you. 

We invite submissions from all disciplines for a scientific poster session to be held in conjunction with Prairie Organics: Think Whole Farm 2020 in Brandon, Manitoba. The poster session is an opportunity for scientists working on projects relevant to organic production in the Prairie/Great Plains region to present results to producers and researchers working in this region.

Posters should be relevant to organic grain, oilseed, pulse, vegetable and livestock production in the Prairie region. We also welcome topics on economics and other areas of social science.
