A day-long Organic Grain and Oilseed Workshop for farmers who are interested in organic row crop production is set for June 27 at UGA's Tifton campus. The workshop will feature classroom presentations, farmer roundtable discussions, and a field tour that will highlight cultivation practices that make organic grain and oilseed production possible in Georgia's climate.
