“All four of my grandparents started their farming careers using what are essentially organic methods – crop rotation, livestock integration and some mechanical weed control.”  – Martin Entz.
Modern Organic farming builds on these fundamentals, but involves a deeper scientific understanding of soil and plant process plus exciting new farm machinery. This presentation will highlight the latest approaches and machines available for organic farming on the prairies, and provide examples of what modern organic farming methods can offer.
