Welcome to "ON Organic!"

We hope you enjoy this month's edition of ON Organic with information on Chick Days and biosecurity kits for small flock poultry as well as strawberry production using low tunnel organic systems. Also included in this month's newsletter is the preliminary listing of IPM scout training courses offered each spring by OMAFRA. Be sure to sign up and learn more about applying integrated pest management principles in your crops this year. In addition, please note the details for the upcoming Organic Council of Ontario AGM on March 27, 2015 in the Meetings and Events section of the newsletter.

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!

Thank you once again to our contributing authors and to EFAO, OCO and others who pass along our newsletter on a regular basis.
