More info about the Workshop

The company has planted eight test plots of its new custom cover crop blends and will be featuring each plot in discussion about the use, habit and structure of the plot and how farmers can use each blend to optimize soil water holding capacity, enable nitrogen storage and delivery, reduce compaction, suppress weeds and disease, and much more!

Agriculture Solutions agronomists and plant health specialists will be on-site to discuss each plot and answer any questions you have about using cover crops on your farm.

Global leaders gather to take action on sustainable livestock production

Livestock are seen as both a source of greenhouse gas emissions and a solution to climate change. To help bring balance, dialogue and understanding to an often-contentious issue, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations last fall hosted the first-ever Global Conference on Sustainable Livestock Transformation. 

Feeding the Future

The agri-food industry is the most important in the world – we all need to eat. Research and innovation have enabled tremendous change in the livestock sector, and we can expect that change to increase in rate.
