Featured presenters for this year will include Klaas Martens of Lakeview Organic Grain in New York, Steve Culman from Washington State University (formerly Ohio State), Léa Vereecke from Rodale Institute, and Eugene Law from USDA-Agricultural Research Services (soon to be an Ohio State assistant professor in weed ecology). We’ll again feature a trade show with venders who offer relevent goods and services; a farmer roundtable lunch; and farmer panels on topics like weed control strategies, technology, and biological products. Our 2024 line-up includes Ohio State educators and researchers with an interest in organic production, including manure nutrient management field specialist Glen Arnold, assistant professor of weed science Alyssa Essman; associate professor in soils and agronomy Ryan Haden; horticulture extension specialist Matt Kleinhenz; corn and emerging crop specialist Osler Ortez; and farm management field specialist Eric Richer, plus research updates on perennial wheat and crop-livestock integration.
