Thank you to all who attended the 2019 Symposium.
Due to COVID-19, we were unable to hold a Symposium in 2020. We hope to see you in 2021!
2019 Organic Symposium
The 2019 symposium had a weed management theme and featured weed ecologist Chuck Mohler as keynote speaker, a panel discussion on on-farm research best practices and a poster session with networking.
Twenty-six posters were presented by undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, researchers, extension educators, and growers at the inaugural Cornell Organic Symposium. Below is a list of the posters and their main authors.
These PDFs are currently in a process to bring them up to our web accessibility standards. If you would like one of these posters before this process is completed, please contact jnt3 [at] cornell.edu (Jenn Thomas-Murphy).
