Welcome to "ON Organic!"

We hope you enjoy this month's newsletter with information on the fatty acid profile in Ontario organic milk and learning the difference between downy and powdery mildew in various crops. Additionally, make sure to note of the public review taking place until September 22, 2014 of the proposed changes to the Canada Organic Standards.

September also brings Organic Week (September 20-28, 2014)! To learn more about events taking place in your area please visit the Organic Week website at www.organicweek.ca.

As always, we want to hear from you! Are there livestock, crop or business 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!

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.
