About

The Organic Agronomy Training Series (OATS) is a collaboratively managed, science-based train-the-trainer program for agricultural professionals working with organic or transitioning producers in the United States.

  • Systems thinking & long-term strategies for success in organic production
  • Managing risk during transition
  • Organic certification process & record keeping
  • National Organic Program (NOP) rules & regulations
  • Organic marketing and crop diversity
  • Networking with other organic-focused professionals
  • On-farm & hands-on experiential learning on organic operations
