Cover Crops and Soil Health

It's time to plant the cover crops! Seeding was begun on the fields, which will be the site of our fall field day, on August 8th. A high clearance seeder finished seeding on August 23rd. Several different mixes were chosen to offer a good comparison including buckwheat, hairy vetch, red clover, forage turnips, radish, rye and sunflower.

Be sure to "Save the Date" for our November 1st Soil Health Field Day at the Pinney-Clark Farm in Kouts
