Dr. Greta Gramig (weed scientist, North Dakota State University) will present results from organic agriculture research conducted by NDSU scientists. Topics include biodegradable mulches for organic vegetable production and cropping sequences for creeping perennial weed suppression. Group discussion will focus on potential topics and collaboration ideas for future research projects. Farmer input is highly encouraged!

Dr. Greta Gramig and her graduate student (Jesse Puka-Beals) will discuss the findings of a 2 year research project that examined weed management tactics in organic vegetable production. The project was conducted at NDSU's Fargo campus and in Absaraka ND on certified organic land. The objectives of the study were to observe the crop and weed response to an integrated weed management plan that may be useful for small-scale vegetable growers in the Red River valley. Discussion topics will include cover crops and hydromulching.
