Cover Crop Strategies Field Day

The Cover Crop Strategies Field Day sponsored by OSU Extension of Shelby, Mercer, and Auglaize Counties and VanTilburg Farms has been rescheduled to Wednesday, April 22nd.  This follow-up to last fall’s field day will allow us to see what’s happened *below* the soil surface.

Some of the specific points to be discussed will include managing cover crops in the spring, preparing to plant the next crop, and year-round tips for effective cover crop use.  As previously planned, the “Open House” is from 2p to 7p with informational tours scheduled at 2:30p, 4:30p, and 6p.

Other features of the Field Day include Crop insurance implications of Cover Crops, possible EQIP Funding through NRCS.  Light refreshments will be provided.  This Field Day will be held southwest of St. Marys on SR 364, about one-half mile north of SR 219.  Look for the signs!  There is no cost to attend.
