Welcome to "ON Organic!"

We hope you enjoy this month's newsletter with information on temperature regulation for poultry in the summer, native pollinators in cucurbit crops, a Brown Marmorated Stink Bug update and a new tool for farm business management.

As always, we want to hear from you! Are there livestock, crop or business management issues you are facing or would like to learn more about? Please let us know so we can address it for you (and others) in an upcoming newsletter!

We welcome your comments and any suggestions for topics in the newsletter.
