Crop Planning Webinars

This February, Canadian Organic Growers (COG) is running a series of farmer training webinars. My co-farmer Fred and myself will be giving a 2-part webinar entitled

Crop Planning For Organic Vegetable Growers

(based on the book of the same name)

Part 1 – Setting your crop planning objectives

Thursday Feb. 10

12 p.m. – 1 p.m. EST

This webinar creates the foundation for your crop plan. It begins with setting financial goals for your farm business that are then developed into a marketing plan.  We will also explore how to analyze the profitability of the crops you choose to grow.

Part 2 – Developing and implementing your crop plan

Thursday Feb. 24

12 p.m. – 1 p.m. EST

This webinar covers how to develop and implement a successful crop plan. You’ll transform your marketing plan from part 1 into a complete crop plan that includes field planting schedules, greenhouse schedules and a seed order.  You will also learn how to monitor and carry out your plan out through the unexpected vagaries of the growing season.
