Organic Farmer Researcher Network: Practical Advice for On-Farm Research from Practical Farmers of Iowa’s Stefan Gailans

Jul 6, 2023, 12:00pm - 1:00pm

The July Ohio Organic Farmer Researcher Network meeting will feature Stefan Gailans from Practical Farmers of Iowa (PFI). Stefan leads PFI’s Cooperators’ Program, where he helps farmers turn their research ideas into relevant and shareable knowledge--similar to the goals of our emerging group! Stefan will share his experience about successful on-farm research. He’ll also talk about the mechanics of the cooperator program, including funding, participation, partnerships, and communications. The PFI Cooperator’s Program was established in 1987 and has helped more than 240 Iowa farmers conduct on-farm research trials that matter to them. Check out some of their projects and the user-friendly display of project details at
