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:
Austrian winter peas
Field (spring) peas
Spring and fall triticale
& Various combinations of the above
Cost: $5 per person or $10 per farm, whichever is less. RSVP!
