7th Annual Iowa Organic Conference

November 19, 2007 – Scheman Building, Iowa State Center, Ames, Iowa

Organic sales have more than doubled in the past five years, reaching $16.9 billion last year, according to the Organic Trade Association. The demand for organic crops currently exceeds supply and growers everywhere are encouraged to consider the potential for organic production. This year’s Iowa Organic Conference will include multiple sessions on organic livestock production taught by farmers who have successfully managed their animal systems, as well as local foods including marketing options for beginning growers. In addition, we will have presentations on organic grains, vegetables, herbs, fruits, soil health and incentives to get you started or enhance your marketing skills. A trade show of 30 vendors featuring organic products and services will be held during the conference with ample time for visiting. Our all-organic, four-course lunch will include delicious organic products from Iowa and the Midwest.

Registration now open. For more information on the Organic Agriculture program at Iowa State University, please check out our website at:  http://extension.agron.iastate.edu/organicag/
