Healthy Soil-Healthy Water Field Tour
October 18, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
Dodge County Farmers for Healthy Soil-Healthy Water, will host their first field tour of three local farms using cover crops, on Wednesday, October 18th, 2017. The tour will visit three sites around Dodge County. Buses for the tour will leave from the Dodge County Fairgrounds, located on Highway 33 east of Beaver Dam, WI. Under the guidance of UW-Extension, this group of farmers have started on-farm trials, evaluating the best way to plant cover crops into current crop rotations. Come listen and learn from these local producers who will share their soil health philosophy and rationale for planting cover crops. Tour stops will show frost-seeded red clover into winter wheat, interseeding a cover crop mix into corn, cover crop mix demonstration plots, plus two stops on the tour will have soil pits. To pre-register, please call the Dodge County UW-Extension office at 920-386-3790.
