Welcome to "ON Organic!"

Season's Greetings from ON Organic!

We hope you enjoy this month's edition of ON Organic with information about dairy herd selection and natural enemies in crop production.

Also, a reminder for students completing admissions applications for 2015 college and university programs that a list of diploma and degree programs in organic agriculture and horticulture are available on the Organic Agriculture Centre of Canada website. Please visit their website for more information at www.dal.ca/faculty/agriculture/oacc/en-home/education.html

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!

Thank you once again to our contributing authors and to EFAO, OCO and others who pass along our newsletter on a regular basis.
