Applying Acceptable Inputs

Sunday, January 27, 2019 - 12:45 pm to 1:45 pm


Workshop Description

Understanding allowable inputs was one of the biggest issues for transitioning organic producers in the Canada Organic Growers 2017-2018 Transition to Organic Production Study.

Many producers don’t understand what they can use as inputs in their production – either failing / delaying transition because they accidentally used a prohibited input or losing their organic certification because of it.

This workshop aims to bring clarity to this subject .

When applying acceptable inputs, whether they are used as soil amendments, pH “modifiers”, pest-control products, seed coatings, cleaners or physical amendments, there are four main issues that will be discussed…

  • What inputs can be used?
  • How much is needed?
  • When should the input be applied?
  • How should the input be applied?
