Our New Training Videos for Produce Operations
In early 2019, we announced a brand new video resource called CNG 101. CNG 101 is a series of lessons that cover the basics of meeting Certified Naturally Grown production standards for produce operations. Our educational videos are available online, on demand, and free of charge.
All eight training videos are now live!
Our videos are a robust resource geared towards beginning farmers and folks who are interested in joining our community. But, these videos are excellent refresher for farmers of all levels...We could all use a little CNG 101!
These 15 to 40 minute trainings cover the following topics:
- Soil Management
- Weed Management
- Vegetable Pest Management
- Vegetable Disease Management
- Seeds, Planting Stock, and Variety Selection
- Environmental Protections and Preventing Contaminants
- Crop Rotation
- Cover Crops
