Multi-species cover crop field day near Harmony


Fri, Sep 20th, 2013
Posted in Harmony Agriculture

The benefits of cover crops are becoming more apparent as more farmers use them. A field day will be held Saturday, September 28 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Jim Love farm west of Harmony, Minn. (13748 201st Ave., Preston, Minn.) to discuss these many benefits. Go 12 miles west of Harmony on County Road 44 then north on 201st Ave. one mile on the east side.

Jim planted a cover crop that has a three species mix (tillage radish, Tillage Root Max annual rye and crimson clover). There will be several agronomists from the area to speak about their experience with cover crops. Funding to support this event is provided by the National Wildlife Federation Cover Crop Champion Grant in cooperation with the Fillmore Soil and Water Conservation District and University of Minnesota Extension. Contact Dean Thomas at the Fillmore SWCD office for more information (507)765-3878 ext. 3, or email dean.thomas@fillmoreswcd.org.
