Event description

Description

Prairie Organic Research Symposium

Organic agriculture comes with its own standards and related research nuances, which can present challenges for researchers. Few opportunities exist for scientists, technicians and graduate students interested in studying organic agriculture, to meet as peers, to discuss issues and opportunities relating to organic research and to establish networks.

This symposium is designed for scientists, technicians and graduate students involved or interested in organic agriculture, to meet, to connect, and to learn from each other. It emphasizes discussion, but will include a few keynote presentations and an opportunity for you to present a snapshot of your research. See the draft agenda below.

Note: this event is immediately following the Advancing Organics conference hosted by SaskOrganics on 26/27 March. It is a great opportunity to attend a producer oriented organic conference.

Research Snapshot: Participants will be asked to give a brief (~5 minute, details to follow) presentation about your research. Please indicate if you would be willing to do so on the registration form including your title.
