Should you consider converting to organic farming?
As the new Organic Farming Scheme opens today on the 9th February, organic specialist Joe Kelleher gives tips and considerations for conversion to organic farming on this week’s Beef Edge podcast
The government is targeting a conversion of 350,000 Ha of agricultural land to organics over the next 5 years and Joes outlines the opportunities and steps to conversion.
Given the rising input costs, he also has organic farming tips that beef farmers consider even if they didn’t want to take the full leap to converting.
