If you are interested in conducting or participating in on farm research this webinar is for you!  On Farm Research (OFR)  is when farmers conduct research on their farm with guidance from researchers (often the land grant university such as Michigan State University) and often times  the same or similar research as what is being done on research sites. OFR is a great way to check the feasibility for a practice to be implemented on a farm or check a research question out in different settings (soils, climates, with different equipment, etc). This webinar is free, you do need internet but no microphone or camera. Even without internet you can listen on a telephone.  

This presentation is being presented by Dr. Sieg Snapp from Michigan State University/Kellogg Biological Station. She will share her knowledge and experiences about the virtues and challenges of on farm research. This webinar is being facilitated and offered to you by E Organic.  If you miss this session you can see the recorded version AFTER tomorrow's presentation at 2 pm est.
