Get budget-wise and risk savvy
at this unique all-day workshop
The lack of adequate quantities of organic seed is recognized as a weak link in the organic supply chain. But for organic seed growers to increase production, they need to know the risks involved and be empowered with budgeting tools that can expand their business model.
With support from the US Department of Agriculture’s Risk Management Agency, Organic Seed Alliance is offering a one-day intensive on seed production economics on Wednesday, February 14, 2018, prior to the 9th Organic Seed Growers Conference. Led by agricultural economist Travis Greenwalt of Highland Economics this course will train seed producers in:
- Developing enterprise budgets for seed production
- Using budgets to make decisions on capital investments and new or expanded enterprises
- Understanding the national organic seed market
- Managing seed production contracts with seed companies
During the workshop, experienced seed producers will present case studies from their own experiences using enterprise budgets developed with guidance from Oregon Tilth. Participating producers will also have an opportunity to network with seed company representatives.
