Are you interested in cover crops as a means to protect the water and soil in your care? You might be interested in Effective Cover Cropping in the Midwest, a conference sponsored by the Soil and Water Conservation Society and recommended by the Council on Best Management Practices that will provide farmers a forum to exchange information, discuss opportunities for collaboration, and learn about new and successful practices related to cover crops.
Join farmers, crop consultants and university researchers on December 7 and 8 in Decatur, IL for general sessions by Steve Groff, Cedar Meadow Farm and Ken Ferrie, Farm Journal Field Agronomist , three concurrent sessions and a roundtable session. The goal of the conference is to get farmers together to learn how to effectively manage cover crops in a way that enhances soil quality, keeps nutrients in the fields, and increases the bottom line.
As nutrient management becomes more of a hot button issue with the U.S. and Illinois EPA, cover crops could become a best management practice that you need to be aware of. This low cost conference is your chance to learn more about this current issue.
Cost for the session is $49 prior to November 1; sign up today!
