Workshop Session: Saturday II

For an organic farmer, pesticide drift can be devastating. We’ll share how we dealt with drift incidents and what we learned in the process—especially the need for quick action and documentation to prove the drift occurred. We’ll discuss possible ways to protect your farm and your crops, and explore what we all can do to protect organic farms from drift.
