Welcome to "ON Organic!"

As we continue through the field season the Organic Agriculture Centre of Canada (OACC) has posted a number of useful extension articles and webinars which may be helpful during the growing season. Some topics include: “Tools for Minimizing Laborious Hand-weeding in Row Crops”, “Breeding for Organic and Low Input Pig Production Systems”, and “Hedging Bets: Legume Mixtures in Pasture”. Visit the OACC website at www.oacc.info for these and other articles of organic production interest.

We want to hear from you! Are there livestock or crop management issues you are facing or would like to learn more about? Please let us know so we can address it for you (and others) in an upcoming newsletter!

As always we welcome your comments and any suggestions for topics in the newsletter. Thank you once again to our contributing authors and to EFAO, OCO and others who pass along our newsletter on a regular basis.
