Schools provide a reliable market, with an advantage for crop planning of having specific agreements on volume and timing of product. By working backwards from your delivery commitments, you can plan out your planting needs well in advance. Learn how to schedule plantings, factor in yield loss and consider fluctuations in timing and weather. Additionally, explore how recordkeeping can help you maintain good communication with the school and better plan for future years. 

The 2023 MI Ag Ideas to Grow With conference will be held virtually, February 27-March 10, 2023. This two-week program encompasses many aspects of the agricultural industry and offers a full array of educational sessions for farmers and homeowners interested in food production and other agricultural endeavors. While there is no cost to participate, attendees must register to receive the necessary zoom links. Registrants can attend as many sessions as they would like and are also able to jump around between tracks. RUP and CCA credits will be offered for several of the sessions.
