280 Symposium--Organic Grain Production: Current Status and Future Opportunities/Division A12 Business Meeting

Oral Session
A12 Organic Management Systems (Provisional)

This symposium will high-light the current status of organic grain production research in North America, with primary focus in the USA. Regional experts will identify successful production strategies and outcomes of research conducted to meet producer goals. Obstacles that must be overcome to enhance organic grain production methods and systems will be identified, along with regional programs working to address these problems. An important objective of this symposium is to foster greater collaboration among scientists working in organic grain production systems.
