Cover Crop Field Walk April 14 in Mason, MI

Cover Crops or Forages? Meet farmers, educators and beginners like yourself. Great way to see and learn! Join us on April 14 as we discuss how fertilizer-saving and soil quality-enhancing cover crops can also be an excellent source of high-quality forage from mid-summer late into the fall and extremely early in the spring! This event begins at 3:00 p.m. just east of the intersection of Plains Road and Tuttle Road in Mason, MI. We will have an interactive tour of a replicated cover crop research plot that was established in wheat stubble in August of 2009. Species in these plots include: Radish Annual ryegrass Crimson clover Fall rye Oats Austrian winter peas Field (spring) peas Spring and fall triticale Grass pea Turnips & Various combinations of the above Cost: $5 per person or $10 per farm, whichever is less.
