Cover Crop Learning Event
We are hosting a cover crop meeting with Kevin Elmy Thursday, March 1st at 8:00am in Heritage Hall South entrance. We will learn how cover crops can be used for erosion control in specialty crops, diversity, and/or for grazing use on your farm. A pass is needed to enter the grounds that early. You need to RSVP and each person entering will receive the pass needed to enter from me. I will email it out when you RSVP your attendance.
Be sure to ask your grain buyers at the show about the CNHR class of wheat. We have Faller CNHR available and it yields like a soft wheat.
Flax has potential to be a great crop this season with good new crop pricing opportunities right now.
Along with excellent coverage of seed treating don't forget we can apply a polymer coating (inoculant lifespan protection) & inoculation on pulses making seeding easier and with less fills. We have faba beans available still, let us know if you have questions on them.
We are getting excited for the seeding season!
See you there! Greg
